ISO 20337:2018 - Fibre-reinforced plastic composites -- Shear test method using a shear frame for the determination of the in-plane shear stress/shear strain response and shear modulus

This document specifies a method using a shear test apparatus for measuring the in-plane shear stress/shear strain response, shear modulus and shear strength of continuous-fibre-reinforced plastic composite materials with fibre orientations of 0° and 0°/90°.

This method is applicable to thermoset and thermoplastic matrix laminates made from unidirectional layers/non-woven fabrics and/or fabrics including unidirectional fabrics, with the fibres oriented at 0° and 0°/90° to the specimen axis, where the lay-up is symmetrical and balanced about the specimen mid-plane.

The method is suitable for determining shear properties in both the linear and nonlinear load-deformation range even at shear strains greater than 5 %.

Short and long fibre-reinforced plastic composites can also be tested using this document.
