plate-shear test

plate-shear test

[′plāt ¦shir ‚test]
(engineering)
A method used to get true shear data on a honeycomb core by bonding the core between two thick steel plates and subjecting the core to shear by displacing the plates relative to each other by loading in either tension or compression.

Results for modulus of rigidity and planar shear strength in the plate-shear tests and five-point flexural shear strength from those tests are given in Table 2.
When comparing the results from the plate-shear tests to those from five-point flexural shear tests, the reported mean shear strength of the specimens loaded in planar shear by plates was generally found to be lower than comparable five-point flexure shear strengths (Fig.
