The results indicated that 2% phenolic resin in the pastes doubled the shear strength of Cu-Cu joints compared to joints made with 0%, 5% and 8% phenolic, because it filled the voids and coated sintered Cu nanoparticles in the joints without affecting the electrical conductivity of the Cu-Cu joint.
The UT-2080 tensile strength tester provides tests such as tensile, compression, tear, adhesion, shear strength, bending and drawing.
ABSTRACT: Slope failure is not necessarily related to the shear strength alone, the liquid limit and dry density in particular are useful indicators in determining the cause for slope failure.
Increase of the shear strength after a short plasma treatment with dry compressed air at atmospheric pressure is demonstrated for various technical thermoplastic materials: PBT (polybutylene terephthalate), PE (polyethylene, HDPE) and PA6 (polyamide), and comparable effects are found on polypropylene (PP) and LCP polyester (LCP).
Multilinear regressions showed that NCO/OH molar ratio was the main factor in developing plywood shear strength.
The aluminium to aluminium joints have been tested using tensometer to obtain the tensile shear strength on each combination of parameters.
The beams also feature 5-gauge wraparound connector plates, two bolts per beam end and grade-5 hardware for greater shear strength.
Finally the Slope/W software was utilized to calculate the Factor of Safety (FOS) along the probable surface failure, by in putting the shear strength parameters corresponding to different degrees of saturation.
Different endodontic sealers like ethoxy benzoic acid (EBA), glass ionomer cement (GIC), AH 26 root canal sealer and zinc phosphate cement were used to determine their shear strength.
Bi-surface shear strength was performed at material level and three-point bending test was conducted at member level.
