Node Shear Test
The welded joints (nodes) of reinforcing welded fabric and lattice girders are tested for shearing. This involves removing specimens from welded fabrics and lattice girders and placing them in special close-fitting specimen grips. Specimen grips used for this type of test must be accurately matched to the diameter and position of the ribbed wires, so that they do not influence the shearing forces. ZwickRoell has decades of experience in this area and has developed a comprehensive range of accessories.
