New Practice for Compressive Residual Strength Properties of Damaged Sandwich Composite Panels

1. Scope

The Committee will develop standard test methods, practices, terminology, and guides; sponsor symposia; stimulate research; and exchange technical information pertaining to composite materials (primarily those with fibrous reinforcement), as well as to reinforcing fibers with a Young's modulus greater than 20 GPa (3x10(6) psi).

This Committee will develop standard specifications for composite materials used in civil structures under Subcommittee D30.10. Other subcommittees under this Committee will not develop standard specifications. All other subcommittees shall be unclassified, as they do not develop standard specifications.

The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees and other organizations having mutual interest.

ASTM D30.09 has developed D7766 Standard Practice for Damage Resistance of Sandwich Constructions, and desires an additional, corresponding standard practice that addresses damage tolerance of sandwich constructions. The proposed standard is in response to this expressed need.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
