Cyclic Shear Testing

Characterising Stiffness Reduction Through Cyclic Shear

To answer difficult questions on how a composite component will behave as it is damaging requires advanced characterisation. Engenuity uses the cyclic shear test to quantify the reduction of stiffness as the damage evolves. We can provide this data to you or create material cards for your preferred simulation package.

Cyclic Shear Testing with DIC

Engenuity has developed a series of technologies to improve speed and accuracy of testing, from coupon preparation right through to results analysis. The video below shows a cyclic shear test with automated load displacement visualisation and DIC strain mapping over the whole sample.
