The object of this study was to develop testing techniques that would permit a valid measure of the in-plane shear properties of advanced filament reinforced composites. The shear properties of glass and graphite reinforced epoxy materials were measured by short-beam shear and torsion tests. The specimen geometries and testing procedures necessary to make valid measures of shear properties were established for each of the tests and were found applicable to all materials studied. The torsion tube and torsion rod tests are the best available methods to accurately measure shear modulus, G, and shear strength,
