Test for Compressive Strength of Advanced Ceramics ASTM C1358
ASTM C1358 is used to determine compressive strength, including stress-strain behavior under monotonic uniaxial loading, of continuous fiber-reinforced advanced ceramics (CFCC) at ambient temperatures. This test is used for material development, material comparison, characterization, reliability assessment, quality assurance, and design data generation of CFCCs. The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard
The ASTM C1358 test method applies to advanced ceramic matrix composites with continuous fiber reinforcement. It could be unidirectional (1D), bidirectional (2D), and tri-directional (3D), or other multi-directional reinforcements. This test is also applicable to glass (amorphous) matrix composites with 1D, 2D, 3D, and other multi-directional continuous fiber reinforcements. Although ASTM C1358 does not directly address discontinuous, fiber-reinforced, whisker-reinforced, or particulate-reinforced ceramics, it can be equally applicable to these composites.
Compressive strength refers to the compressive strength obtained under monotonic uniaxial loading, where monotonic refers to a continuous nonstop test rate with no reversals during the tests.
The specimen is mounted in the load train. Specimens with different grip interfaces and specimen geometry are mounted differently. The dimensions of the specimens are determined. The test modes and rates to be used for specific specimens are determined.
The test mode and test rate is selected on the test machine. The specimen is preloaded to remove the “slack” from the load train, and the amount of preload used is reported. The amount of preload for each situation is specific to each material tensile test specimen geometry. The data acquisition and test mode are initiated. Specimen is compressed till fracture. After that, the action of the test machine and the data collection of the data acquisition system is disabled.
The breaking load is measured and reported within 61.0% of the load range. The specimen is carefully removed from the grip interfaces. The specimen halves are placed along with other fragments from the gage section into a suitable, non metallic container for later analysis.
The test specimens should have solid rectangular cross sections. The minimum gage length should be 25 mm. The length of the gripped sections at each end of the specimen should be at least 50 mm. The minimum width should be 10 mm and the minimum thickness should be 3 mm.
σ = the engineering stress,
P = the applied, uniaxial tensile load.
A = the original cross-sectional area.
€= (I – I0) I0
ε = the engineering strain,
I = the extensometer gage length at any time, and I0 = the original gage length of the extensometer.
Su = Pmax /A
Su = the tensile strength
Pmax = the maximum load
Modulus of Elasticity:
E = modulus of elasticity,
Δσh/ Δσh = the slope of the (σh– εh) curve within the linear region.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
