ASTM F Modulus of Rupture of Ceramic Substrate

A compressive loading is applied at the center of the disk specimen by a 0. Both biaxial test methods have an advantage relative to a axtm 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.

In spite of these uniform load introduction concerns, this test method is gaining in popularity. As another aid to achieve uniform loading, the loading head is articulated, being supported on a spherical seat.

ASTM F394 Modulus of Rupture (Biaxial Flexure Strength) of Ceramic Substrates

The required diameters of the support and loading ring are dependent on the thickness and material properties of the specimen being tested. The standard gives expressions atsm calculating these parameters. TestResources provides Electromechanical Compresion Test Machines mounted with biaxial flexure fixtures to precisely test your thin ceramic material.


Specimen warpage is also a problem when flexural testing a straight beam Reference 4requiring an articulating test fixture. 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.

Sources of Additional Information: Thus, the surface finish of the edge of the specimen is not critical.

This fixture, assembled and disassembled, is r394 in Figs. Site designed for Internet Explorer 5. 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. Many turn to testing standards such as ASTM F to determine the modulus of rupture for their thin ceramic materials.

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 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 thickness sheet of a compliant material e.


The test fixture is shown in Fig. 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.

The specimen will be bent in a cupping fashion by a test machine applying force to the center of the disk through a cylindrical ram.

The minimum thickness of the specimen must be such that its center deflection at failure does not exceed one-half the specimen thickness.


Equipment Astk TestResources provides Electromechanical Compresion Test Machines mounted with biaxial flexure fixtures to precisely test your thin ceramic material. For ASTM F, take a thin circular disk specimen of the ceramic and rest it on three symmetrically spaced points near its periphery. The force is applied to the ram at a constant rate in a compression test machine until the specimen breaks. This aastm not the case when flexural testing a straight beam.
