Revision of E1922-04(2015) Standard Test Method for Translaminar Fracture Toughness of Laminated and Pultruded Polymer Matrix Composite Materials


None Provided


This standard has been transferred from E08 to D30 (specifically D30.05). I have endeavored to harmonize the current published standard with D30 boilerplate for consistency with other D30.05 standards. I will also be providing a technical update to transition from a calculation of translaminar fracture toughness to a laminate-specific stress at fracture, moving the historical calculations to an appendix, and adding discussion on the appropriate use of the test method.
