Description

ASTM D7291 – Standard Test Method for Through-Thickness “Flatwise” Tensile Strength and Elastic Modulus of a Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composite Material

 

ASTM D7291 – Through-Thickness “Flatwise” Tensile Strength and Elastic Modulus of a Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composite Material

ASTM D7291– This test method determines the through-thickness “flatwise” tension strength and elastic modulus of fiber reinforced polymer matrix composite

materials.

A tensile force is applied normal to the plane of the composite laminate using adhesively bonded thick metal end-tabs.

The composite material forms are limited to continuous-fiber or discontinuous fiber (tape or 2-dimensional fabric, or both) reinforced composites.

The through-thickness strength results using this test method will in general not be comparable to Test Method D6415 since this method subjects a relatively large

volume of material to an almost uniform stress field while Test Method D6415 subjects a small volume of material to a non-uniform stress field.


Significance and Use

This test method is designed to produce through-thickness failure data for structural design and analysis, quality assurance, and research and development.

Factors that influence the through-thickness tensile strength, and should therefore be reported, include the following: material and fabric reinforcement,

methods of material and fabric preparation, methods of processing and specimen fabrication, specimen stacking sequence, specimen conditioning, environment

of testing, specimen alignment, speed of testing, time at temperature, void content, and volume reinforcement content
