The properties range from size and appearance, to tensile, compression, and shear strengths, as well as hardness, water absorption, and fastener holding.
The information included on this page will focus on the mechanical tests within ASTM D that are the most common and best performed on a universal testing machine to identify typical mechanical properties. Mount the specimen in a 3-point center loading fixture. Selection of the proper fixture span, supports, and loading nose will depend on specimen size and condition. Apply load to the center of the specimen at the constant rate of speed calculated from the equation in the standard.
Continue the test until rupture, while recording all force vs. Typical Calculations: Modulus of Rupture, Stiffness Apparent Modulus of Elasticity Tensile Strength Parallel to Surface dog-bone specimens Prepare the specimens as described in the test method — using dog-bone shapes cut from both directions with respect to original board, in dry and soaked conditions.
Mount the specimens in self-aligning and self-tightening grips. Apply a tensile load at the constant rate of speed specified in the standard. Continue loading until failure. Calculations: Max Load, Max Stress Tensile Strength Perpendicular to Surface block-type specimens Prepare the specimens as described in the test method — dry condition only. Bond the test specimen to test blocks on both sides and mount the assembly into the appropriate loading fixtures. Prepare the specimens as described in the test method and selected procedure — both in the dry and soaked conditions.
Load the specimens into the test machine, centered underneath a spherically seated compression platen. Apply a compressive load at the constant rate of speed specified in the standard.
