Description / Abstract:

This guide provides a common format for mechanical test data for composite materials for two purposes: (1) to establish data reporting requirements for test methods and (2) to provide information for the design of material property databases. This guide should be used in combination with Guide E1309 which provides similar information to identify the composite material tested.

These guidelines are specific to mechanical tests of high-modulus fiber-reinforced composite materials. Types of tests considered in this guide include tension, compression, shear, flexure, open/filled hole,2 bearing, fracture toughness, and fatigue. The ASTM standards for which this guide was developed are listed in 2.1. The guidelines may also be useful for additional tests or materials.

This guide is the second part of a modular approach for which the first part is Guide E1309. Guide E1309 serves to identify the material, and this guide serves to describe mechanical testing procedures and variables and to record results. The interaction of this guide with Guide E1309 is emphasized by the common numbering of data elements. Data Elements A1 through G13 are included in Guide E1309 and numbering data elements in this guide begins with H1.

This guide with Guide E1309 may be referenced by the data-reporting section of a test method to provide common data-reporting requirements for the types of tests listed in 1.2.

From this information and Guide E1309, the database designer should be able to construct the data dictionary preparatory to developing a database schema.

Data elements in this guide are relevant to test data, data as obtained in the test laboratory and historically recorded in lab notebooks. Property data, data which have been analyzed and reviewed, require a different level of data elements. Data elements for property data are provided in Annex A1.
