ASTM F394 Biaxial Flexure Fixture for Ceramic Substrates | GF394-543

Equipment Needed TestResources provides Electromechanical Compresion Test Machines mounted with biaxial flexure fixtures to precisely test your thin ceramic material. A compressive loading is applied at the center of the disk specimen by a 0. One important advantage of this biaxial test configuration is that specimen warpage is not an influencing factor, as opposed to the ring-on-ring test ASTM C Wyoming Test Fixtures Inc. This testing method provides a calculation of biaxial flexure strength for specimens in the as-fired condition or to test pieces prepared to have a certain thickness or surface finish.

The required diameters of the support and loading ring are dependent on the thickness and material properties of the specimen being tested.


The test fixture is shown in Fig. The minimum thickness of the specimen must be such that its center deflection at failure does not exceed one-half the specimen thickness. Sources of Additional Information: This is not the case when flexural testing a straight beam.

The dimensions and elastic contents of the specimen, breaking load, and the radii of the support and load are used to calculate the maximum tensile stress which is at the center of the tension convex surface. For ASTM F, take a thin circular disk specimen of the ceramic and rest it on three symmetrically spaced points near its periphery. In order to attain a uniform load distribution, either the specimen surfaces must be very flat typically by surface grindingor a relatively thick one-half the specimen asrm sheet of a compliant material e.


Both biaxial test methods have an advantage relative to a flexural test of a straight beam in that the maximum biaxial tensile stress occurs at the center of the specimen on the lower convex when deflected side. As another aid to achieve uniform loading, the loading head is articulated, being supported on a spherical seat.


The specimen will be bent in a cupping fashion by a test machine applying asttm to the center of the disk through a cylindrical ram. Site designed for Internet Explorer 5.

ASTM F Modulus of Rupture of Ceramic Substrate

Many turn to testing standards such as ASTM F to determine the modulus of rupture for their thin ceramic materials. In spite of these uniform load introduction concerns, this test method is gaining in popularity.

It utilizes the same type of fixture, but specifies a specific size, namely, a 30mm support ring, a 12mm loading ring, and a 2mm cross-sectional radius of the rings. The standard gives expressions for calculating these parameters. Specimen warpage is also a problem when flexural testing a straight beam Reference 4requiring an articulating test fixture. The force is applied to the ram at a constant rate in a compression test machine until the specimen breaks.

This fixture, assembled and disassembled, is shown in Figs. Thus, the surface finish of the edge of the specimen is not critical.
