Abstract:

The report presents a method for determining shear modulus and shear strength of unidirectional fiber-reinforced composites. The method incorporates data from uniaxial tensile andor compressive tests at fiber orientations of 0, 45, and 90 degrees. The approach presented requires fewer specimens for shear strength determinations than current existing procedures.
