The measurement of the adhesive to withstand a force applied parallel to the cross-sectional area of the material.
A measure of the ability of a soil to resist forces that tend to separate it from its position on a slope and cause it to move.
Physical Properties and Testing Force per surface unit required to bring an adhesive joint to the point of failure by means of forces applied in a shear mode.
the ability of a material to resist breaking if it is subjected to a shear force.
The maximum resistence of a soil to shear stress.
The force required to break a bond by shearing the glue line (measured in pounds per square inch of bond area).
In materials, the stress required to produce fracture in the plane of cross section, the conditions of loading being such that the directions of force and resistance are parallel and opposite although their paths are offset a specified minimum amount.
The ability of a material to resist cleavage, or the maximum shear stress that can be sustained by a material before rupture. A reduction in insulation shear strength resistance leaves roof membranes susceptible to splitting from stress concentrations and displacement. Similarly, pipe insulation in applications with severe pipe movement requires good shear strength to avoid insulation damage.
property defined as the force sufficient to cause a rupture within the area subjected to shear divided by the area subjected to shear
The ability of the adhesive to resist force applied in the same plane as the tape.
The stress (pounds [N] or pounds per inch width) required to disrupt a lap seam or bonded joint or attachment by forcing the substrates to slide over each other
The limiting stress of a material determined by measuring a strain resulting from applied forces that cause or tend to cause bonded contiguous parts of a body to slide relative to each other in a direction parallel to their plane of contact; the value of the force achieved when shearing stress is applied to the bond (normally parallel to the substrate) to determine the breaking load. Strength to withstand shearing of a material.
Resistance of material (i.e., epoxy) to being broken or torn apart.
The ability of a plastic material to withstand shear stresses.
The capacity of a material to resist separation in allele planes, as in cutting.
The stress at which a material fails in shear or the ability of a material to withstand shear stress.
It is the maximum shear stress a material is capable of sustaining. It is calculated from the maximum load during a shear test and is based on the original dimensions of the cross-sections of the specimen. (ASTM C273)
An engineering term used to describe a soil or structure to resist applied forces that causes or tends to cause two contiguous parts of a body to slide relative to each other.
The maximum stress that a material is capable of sustaining in shear. In practice, shear strength is considered to be the maximum average stress computed by dividing the ultimate load in the plane of shear by the original area subject to shear. Shear strength is usually determined by inserting a cylindrical specimen through round holes in three hardened steel blocks, the center of which is pulled (or pushed) between the other two so as to shear the specimen on two planes. The maximum load divided by the combined cross-sectional area of the two planes is the shear strength.
in a snow slab, the slope parallel component of gravity tends to pull the slab downhill while friction and cohesion between snow surfaces act to hold the slab in place. Slippage between the slab and its undersurface can result, and avalanching can result if gravity induce shear stress between layers exceeds shear strength bonding layers together. Snow layers composed of surface hoar, graupel, low-density snow, etc., have very low shear strengths.
The measurement of a material to withstand a shear force or pressure.
The maximum shear stress that a material is capable of sustaining. Shear strength is calculated from the maximum load during a shear or torsion test and is based on the original cross-sectional area of the specimen.
Resistance to lateral movement or failure along a potential failure surface.
The maximum shearing force, per unit area, an adhesive bond will endure before failure. A shearing force on an adhesive bond is created when the two substrates adhered together are forced in opposite directions in the same plane as the bond. Usually expressed in pounds per square inch (psi).
The stress required to disrupt a seam or bonded joint or attachment by forcing the substrate material to slide out from the overlying material or vice versa.
1) ability of a material to withstand shear stress or stress at which a material fails in shear. 2) the maximum shear strength stress that a material is capable of sustaining.
The maximum shear stress that can be sustained by a material before rupture. The ultimate strength of a material subjected to shear loading, as determined in a torsion test.
Resistance to transverse loading. Transverse loads should only be applied to a dowel pin or to the unthreaded section of a screw; otherwise, deformation will occur. Shear strength is measured in terms of pounds or kilonewtons.
Internal or cohesive strength of the adhesive.
The maximum shear stress which a material can sustain under a given set of conditions. In soil mechanics it is necessary to refer shear strength to the strain at which the strength is measured. critical shear strength c = c'c + ' tan peak shear strength p = c'p + ' tan undrained shear strength c = su residual shear strength r = c'r + ' tan
The shear force required to break a specimen divided by its cross-sectional area; the force being applied parallel to the cross-sectional area.
The maximum shear stress a material can sustain. Shear strength is calculated from the maximum load during a shear or torsion test and is based on the original dimensions of the cross section of the specimen.
in geology, describes the compressive strength (ability to withstand pushing forces) of soils; results from two internal mechanisms: cohesion between soil particles, and friction caused by contact between particles; variable among different soils.
(a) The ability of a material to withstand shear stress. (b) The stress at which a material fails in shear.
nbspInternal or cohesive strength of the adhesive.
Maximum shear stress a material is capable of withstanding without failure.
Ability of a solder joint to resist a force applied parallel to the printed circuit board.
Shear strength in mechanical engineering and structural engineering is a term used to describe the strength against the type of structural failure where a component fails by shearing when it splits into two parts that slide past each other. The shear strength of a component is most important for beams but also relevant for e.g. plates. In a reinforced concrete beam, the main purpose of stirrups is to increase the shear strength.
