fragmentation test

fragmentation test

[‚frag·mən′tā·shən ‚test]
(ordnance)
A test conducted to determine the number and weight distribution, and (where the method used permits) the velocity and spatial distribution of fragments produced by a projectile or other munition upon detonation.

There are a lot of works to get the interfacial shear strength and other interface parameters, such as the fiber critical length obtained by single fiber fragmentation test and the relationship between fiber pullout force and displacement by single fiber pullout test [17, 18].
The other is finished by applying the external load to the resin matrix, such as fiber fragmentation test [12, 13] and Broutman test [24].
The experimental results of fiber pullout test, fiber fragmentation test, and fiber push-out test vary widely at the same external conditions.
According to the European Standard EN 12150-2:2004, to establish whether a product conforms to the definition of thermally toughened soda lime silicate safety glass, initial type testing shall consist of a) mechanical strength measurement in accordance with EN 12150-1 (also EN 1288-3:2000) and/or b) fragmentation test in accordance with EN 12150-1:2000.
Sperm DNA fragmentation test is done in some countries but there are still varied opinions on its efficacy and it's not being done in India.
Among specific topics are the thermal effects of cracked piezoelectric materials under cycling electric-loading, the reliability of the fragmentation test, fracture behaviors of nano-silica modified epoxies at elevated temperature, interfacial toughness in a synthetic bone-cement interface, and micro-cracking in nanocrystalline silicon due to indentation and scratching.
According to the European Standard EN 12150-2:2004, to establish if a product conforms to the definition of thermally toughened soda lime silicate safety glass, initial type testing shall consist of a) mechanical strength measurement and b) fragmentation test, in accordance with EN 12150-1:2000.
This paper gives a brief description of the portable polariscope SCALP and some measurement results, which are compared with the four-point bending test and fragmentation test. Together with the long-time experience of surface stress measurement with GASP these results lead to the proposal to accept residual stress measurement in glass panels as the basic non-destructive method for the assessment of their strength.
At another glass factory, 7 panels of different kind of glasses but of the same thermal treatment were investigated, first measuring the surface stress and after that making the fragmentation test according to EN 12150-1:2000.
SCSA test (also known as sperm DNA fragmentation test or sperm chromatin fragmentation test) is original and gold standard for sperm DNA fragmentation screening which delivers a highly accurate measure of male reproductive health (24).
Plywood devices that represent vehicle occupants are used for fragmentation tests.
The sperm chromatin structure assay (SCSA([R])) and other sperm DNA fragmentation tests for evaluation of sperm nuclear DNA integrity as related to fertility.
