6.5.3 Test methods involving shear loads

Compression shear test (DIN 54452)

Measurement of the shearstrength of adhesives in a rotation-symmetric bonded joint in an axial direction; in particular for anaerobic curing adhesives in hub-shaft connections
Torsion shear test (DIN 54452)

Measurement of the shearstrength of adhesives in a rotation-symmetric bonded joint in a tangential direction
Breakaway torque test (DIN EN ISO 10964)

Breakaway torque tests on threads allow comparative evaluation of the safety of bonded screw/bolt threads.

Shear stress – shear strain test / “thick lap shear specimen” (DIN 54451):

Compared to the lap shear specimen according to DIN EN 1465, this “thick lap shear specimen” allows introduction of a defined shearload because the force deflection is very low. It is therefore also very useful for ageing tests.

Measurement of the creep-rupture strength/creep behaviour (DIN EN 15336):

Determination of the creep behaviour when exposed to a specific load for a specific time
