    Abstract

    A detailed description of the experimental procedure for testing composite Iosipescu specimens in the modified Wyoming fixture is presented. Specimen preparation and strain gage instrumentation are addressed. Interpretation of the experimental results is discussed. With the proper experimental setup and procedure, consistent and repeatable shear properties are obtained.
