    Abstract

    The experimental measurement of the shear modulus and shear strength has been of special interest to the materials and composites community for a number years. In recent years, the Iosipescu shear test method has become popular and widely used. The most widely used test fixture is the Modified Wyoming test fixture which requires a specific and accurately fabricated specimen. To date, the methodology to fabricate and inspect these specimens has been left to the discretion of the individual investigators. This technical note presents a suggested methodology for the accurate and precise fabrication of Iosipescu shear test specimens. Dimensional data and the associated error from specimens fabricated are presented as verification of the methodology.
