Resource type: Equation
Description: This equation is used to determine the interlaminate shear strength (ILSS) of a composite material, based upon the force at failure during a 3 point bend test. The test is typically standardised, with B = 10mm, d =2mm and the distance between the two support points = 20mm.

TeX format: {ILSS = \frac{3 P_{max}}{4Bd}}

ILSS {ILSS} = interlaminate shear strength (Pa) {Pa}
Pmax {P_{max}} = maximum force reached during test (N) {N}
B {B} = sample width (m) {m}
d {d} = sample thickness (m) {m}
