AITM1-0010 Airbus Compression After Impact Test Fixture
Some Aerospace companies have developed their own standards for suppliers to test and conform to.
Determination of the residual compressive strength after
Impact loading (CAI) to:
Boeing BSS 7260c, ASTM D7137, DIN 65561, ISO18352, prEN 6038
Airbus AITM 1-0010 issue 3
ParsRos supplies compression after impact fixtures conforming to BSS 7260 and AITM-0010.
This fixture is the basis of Airbus Industries Test Method AITM1-0010
The Airbus specimen is the same size as that used with the S.I. units version of the Boeing fixture, namely, 100 mm wide and 150 mm tall.
A typical specimen lay-up is quasi-isotropic, and approximately 4 mm thick.
The fixture uprights have no adjustment in the width direction, whereas the Boeing fixture does have a minor amount of adjustment because of its slotted holes.
This is not a problem, however, as the standard specimen is specified to be of a precise width and height anyway, namely within ±0.2 mm.
Nevertheless, just as with the Boeing fixture, there is occasionally interest in testing specimens of nonstandard sizes using the Airbus fixture.
One version of a width-adjustable fixture.
The particular fixture shown does not have height adjustment.
The width can be adjusted from 46 mm to 100 mm.
The specimen can be between 4 mm and 11 mm thick.
