Non-axial tensile testing?

  1. Mar 6, 2014 #1
    Hi guys,

    So say I want to perform tensile tests on a bolt, but want to see what the effect of applying the load at various angles to the axis of the bolt would be. It's kindabutnotreally a shear test... I realize that if I had complete knowledge of the material properties of the bolt I could probably figure it out, but it's more complicated than that because the bolt is grouted.

    Does anyone know if any kind of intentionally-misaligned tensile test experiment exists? I've found some for composite materials but they consider "non-axial" to mean that the fibres are aligned at an angle to the test axis and generally examine small samples.
