Anti-Buckling Test Fixture GZ BS-32
The anti-buckling test fixture is used for the cyclic characterisation of the shear and tensile-compression properties of fibre-reinforced plastics to avoid buckling effects (Euler buckling). The test fixture can be used for short, long and continuous fibre-reinforced plastics with thermoplastic or thermosetting matrices and unidirectional layers or multi-layer laminates (sandwich laminates).
The cyclic shear properties can be obtained for composite materials with +/-45° fibre orientation, whereas the cyclic tensile-compression properties can be determined when testing composite materials with 0°, 90° or 0°/90° fibre orientation.
