The planar tension test is designed to test the sample in a plane strain deformation state. The sample is a thin specimen with a width that is significantly larger than the height.
The graph below provides an example of the difference in response of a silicone rubber to planar tension versus uniaxial tension.
Veryst offers the following planar tension tests:
|PT001||Planar tension testing, monotonic to max. stress/strain|
|PT002||Planar tension testing, load/unload (1 strain or stress level)|
|PT003||Planar tension testing, load/unload cycles|
|PT004||Planar tension testing, load/hold/unload cycles|
|PT005||Planar tension stress relaxation testing (up to 12 hrs.)|
|PT006||Planar tension creep testing (up to 12 hrs.)|
|PT007||Custom load history - Combination of load/unload cycles and/or crosshead speeds|
