ASTM A 497/185 - Shear Weld Strength for Steel Welded Wire Fabric

Steel welded wire fabric, made from either cold-worked deformed wire or a combination of deformed and non-deformed wires, is often used in concrete reinforcement. In addition to the tensile strength and bend strength of the welds that support the fabric, the shear strength of the longitudinal and transverse wires is also important to characterize.

Seal Strength Investigation

The manufacturer of a cleaning solution that is packaged and delivered for use in the food industry has received customer complaints that the solution is leaking at some point during shipment. It is possible that the adhesive or the process used to seal the package is insufficient for preventing leakage of the solution over time. A comparison of the strength of the packaging material compared to the strength of the seal through a series of peel tests may provide insight into the problem.

Calculating Poisson's Ratio in Polymer Membranes Using the AVE in Accordance with ASTM D 882

The Advanced Video Extensometer (AVE) has the ability to measure axial and transverse strain without contacting the specimen. Such non-contacting strain measurement is advantageous for testing thin and delicate specimens. The purpose of this test was to evaluate the AVE as a tool for calculating Poisson's Ratio in strips of polymer membranes in accorance with ASTM D 882.

Unique Gripping Method for Testing High Strength Fabrics in Tension

A manufacturer of conveyer belt material was experiencing problems when trying to test their product in tension. The conveyer belt samples either slipped out of the jaw faces due to the inherent lubricity of the material or the test resulted with a jaw break. Samples were sent in to determine if there was a configuration available to resolve this issue.

R&N Testing Using a Video Extensometer - Steel Specimens

Sheet metal testing applications require calculations such as yield strength, yield point elongation, ultimate tensile strength, plastic strain ratio ('r' value)and the strain hardening exponent ('n' value). These calculations place a high physical demand on traditional contacting extensometers. The purpose of this testing was to evaluate the Advanced Video Extensometer (AVE) for performing non-contacting strain measurement on steel specimens.
