AVE2 Dynamic Strain Measurement

In addition to its excellent performance for static testing, the Instron AVE 2 is now available with an option for cyclic testing and high speed monotonic test measurement. Capable of tracking displacement at up to 500mm/s with cyclic test frequencies up to 20Hz, it offers the speed and flexibility scientists and engineers have been waiting for to study the dynamic behaviour of materials without contacting the specimen.

V-Notch Shear Fixtures | ASTM D5379 & D7078

Instron® Shear Test Fixtures are designed for in-plane or interlaminar shear testing of composite materials. The V-Notched Beam Method, more commonly known as the Iosipescu Shear Method, is described in ASTM D5379, while the V-Notched Rail Shear Method is outlined in ASTM D7078. Both test methods share many common characteristics and have the distinctive V-notches in the specimen design, which serve to create a localized and approximate uniform shear stress zone between the notches. Also, a ±45° two-element strain gauge is often used to directly verify the shear strains applied.

Does Your Specimen Quality have an Adverse Effect on Your Data Reliability?

The Instron® Hollow Die Punch system is a tool used to create dog bone shaped specimens easily, quickly, and safely. An ideal choice over the “manual” punching of specimens, the system is powered by compressed air and creates a tensile specimen that is free of tool marks, incipient cracks, induced stresses, internal deformation, and heat distortion in or on the specimen.
