The specimen will be bent in a cupping fashion by a test machine applying force to the center of the disk through a cylindrical ram. Site designed for Internet Explorer 5.

ASTM F394 Biaxial Flexure Fixture for Ceramic Substrates | GF394-543

Thus, the surface finish of the edge of the specimen is not critical. Wyoming Test Fixtures Inc. Specimen warpage is also asrm problem when flexural testing a straight beam Reference 4requiring an articulating test fixture. A compressive loading is applied at the center of the disk specimen by a 0.

This is not the case when flexural testing a straight beam. One important advantage of this biaxial test configuration is that specimen warpage is not an influencing factor, as opposed to the ring-on-ring test ASTM C In spite of these uniform load introduction concerns, this test method satm gaining in popularity.


The minimum thickness of the specimen must be such that its center deflection at failure does not exceed one-half the specimen thickness. The test fixture is shown in Fig.

TestResources provides Electromechanical Compresion Test Machines mounted with biaxial flexure fixtures to precisely test your thin ceramic adtm. This fixture, assembled and disassembled, is shown in Figs. For ASTM F, take a thin circular disk specimen of the ceramic and rest it on three symmetrically spaced points near its periphery.

ASTM-F – Grip-Engineering

The dimensions and elastic contents of the specimen, breaking load, and the radii of the support and load are used to calculate the maximum tensile stress which is at the center of the tension convex atsm. The required diameters of the support and loading ring are dependent on the thickness and material properties of the specimen being tested.

It utilizes the same type of fixture, but specifies a specific size, namely, a 30mm support ring, f349 12mm loading ring, and a 2mm cross-sectional radius of the rings. Many turn to testing standards such as ASTM F to ashm the modulus of rupture for their thin ceramic materials. The force is applied to the ram at a constant rate in a compression test machine until the specimen breaks. In order to attain a uniform load distribution, either the specimen surfaces must be very flat typically by surface grindingor a relatively thick one-half the specimen thickness sheet of a compliant material e.


As another aid to achieve f934 loading, the loading head is articulated, being supported on a spherical seat. The standard gives expressions for calculating these parameters. Sources of Additional Information: Both biaxial test methods have an advantage relative to a flexural test of a straight beam in that the maximum biaxial tensile stress occurs at the center of the specimen on the lower convex when deflected side.

This testing method provides a calculation of biaxial flexure strength for specimens in the as-fired condition or to test pieces prepared to have a certain thickness or surface finish.
