A three-point bending test was implemented to generate damage in the [[90.sub.2]/[0.sub.2]]s coupon specimen (LxWxH= 180x20x1.2 [mm.sup.3]).
Thus, we simulated the physical bending stress by a modified three-point bending test setup and generated an oblique midshaft fracture in a biomechanical fracture model using an electromechanical uniaxial testing machine (Zwick/Roell, Z005/TN2A, Ulm, Germany) as described previously [14].
Three-point bending beam method was employed to measure the fracture parameters in this study, which is an appropriate fracture testing method [22].
The validity of the compression bending testing was then examined by comparing these results with the results from flexural vibration tests and three-point bending tests.
Abstract The interfacial adhesion measurement of a ceramic coating on a metal substrate is studied by three-point bending (3PB) technique.
Girders were loaded in three-point bending under identical boundary conditions.
The samples can be mounted using any of the standard deformation modes (clamps) used for traditional DMA experiments including cantilevered bending, shear, tension, compression or three-point bending. The most common modes, cantilevered bending and tension, are shown in figure 2.
Using results obtained from numerical homogenization a numerical simulation of three-point bending test was proposed.
In (1) and (2), [L.sub.s] is the span of the three-point bending test, which refers to the distance between two support points below the specimen; and b and h are the width and height of the specimens, respectively.
Comparative studies between mechanical properties and fracture characteristics under the action of uniaxial tensile loading and three-point bending were performed in the specimens without the effect of environmental aging (original condition) and under the effect of this aging (aged condition).
