Abstract : The report presents a method for determining shear modulus and shear strength of unidirectional fiber-reinforced composites. The method incorporates data from uniaxial tensile and/or compressive tests at fiber orientations of 0, 45, and 90 degrees. The approach presented requires fewer specimens for shear strength determinations than current existing procedures. (Author)
