Flexural Strength of Adhesive Bonded Laminated Assemblies ASTM D1184
The ASTM D1184 test technique is used to compare the properties of metal and wood adhesive bonded assemblies when they are subjected to flexural stresses with standard form specimens. The performance of specimens evaluated using this method is expressed in SI units.
The ASTM D1184 test method is a standard test method for determining the flexural strength of adhesive bonded laminated assemblies when subjected to flexural stresses with standard form specimens and under defined pretreatment, temperature, relative humidity, and testing methodology conditions.
Rather than reducing shear stress to a minimum, the test specimen and testing technique used in the ASTM D1184 was designed to create a considerable portion of shear forces between the laminae of the test piece when the load is applied. This test method is suitable for both wood and metal bonded specimens, and it also allows you to compare the flexural properties of different assemblies. The ASTM D1184 standard also aids in the reduction of data of metal and wood specimens to a comparable basis through the use of standard formulas.
The specimen tested for ASTM D1184 is a basic beam made up of eight bonded plies loaded at the mid-span. The specimen is examined under standard temperature and humidity conditions. Then, using conventional formulas, the flexural characteristics of metal and wood specimens are compared.
The ASTM D1184 requires two categories of specimens:
➢ Wood specimens ➢ Metal specimens
These specimens are rectangular pieces with a length of 38 mm and a width of 19.1 mm.
❖ For metal specimens the data is reduced to a comparable basis by means of the maximum shear stress formula, as follows:
Ss = 3P/4bd
Ss = maximum shear stress
P = breaking load
B = width of beam
D = depth of the beam
❖ For wood specimens, the data is reduced to a comparable basis by means of the flexural strength formula, as follows:
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.
