ASTM C1499 & F394 TESTING FIXTURE
As another aid to achieve uniform loading, the loading head is articulated, being supported on a spherical seat. Equipment Needed TestResources provides Electromechanical Compresion Test Machines mounted with biaxial flexure fixtures to precisely test your thin ceramic material.
Specimen warpage is also a problem when flexural testing a straight beam Reference 4requiring an articulating test fixture. Site designed for Internet Explorer 5.
This is not the f3944 when flexural testing a straight beam.
ASTM F Biaxial Flexure Fixture for Ceramic Substrates | GF
The specimen will be bent in a cupping fashion by a test machine applying force to the center of the disk through a cylindrical ram. Thus, the surface finish of the edge of the specimen is not critical. Sources of Additional Information: In order to attain a uniform load distribution, either the specimen surfaces must be very flat typically by surface grindingor a relatively thick one-half the specimen thickness sheet of a compliant material e.
This fixture, assembled and disassembled, is shown in Figs. The force is applied to the ram at a constant rate in a compression test machine until the specimen breaks.
ASTM F Modulus of Rupture of Ceramic Substrate
The standard gives expressions for calculating these parameters. Wyoming Test Fixtures Inc.
The minimum thickness of the specimen must be such that its center deflection at failure does not exceed one-half the specimen thickness.
TestResources provides Electromechanical Compresion Test Sstm mounted with biaxial flexure fixtures to precisely test your thin ceramic material. Many turn to testing standards such as ASTM F to determine the modulus of rupture for their thin ceramic materials.
It utilizes the same type of fixture, but specifies a specific size, namely, a 30mm support ring, a 12mm loading ring, and a 2mm cross-sectional radius of the rings. Both qstm test methods have an advantage relative to a flexural test of a straight beam in that the maximum biaxial tensile stress occurs at the center of the specimen on the lower convex when deflected side.
One important advantage of this biaxial test configuration is that specimen warpage is not an influencing factor, as opposed to the ring-on-ring test ASTM C A compressive loading is applied at the center of the disk specimen by a 0. In spite of these uniform load introduction concerns, this test method is gaining in popularity.
The dimensions and elastic contents of the specimen, breaking load, f39 the radii of the support and load are used to calculate the maximum tensile stress which is at the center of the tension convex surface.
The test fixture is shown in Fig.
ASTM F394 Biaxial Flexure Fixture for Ceramic Substrates | GF394-543
The required diameters of the support and loading ring are dependent on the thickness and material properties of the specimen being tested. This testing method provides a calculation of biaxial flexure strength for specimens in the as-fired condition or to test pieces prepared to have a certain thickness or surface finish. For ASTM F, take a thin circular disk specimen of the ceramic and rest it on three symmetrically spaced points near its periphery.
