ASTM D6742 is the standard test method for tensile and compression testing of filled-hole polymer matrix composite laminates. It provides instructions for modifying open-hole tension and compression test methods to determine filled-hole tensile and compressive strengths. The composite material forms are limited to continuous-fiber reinforced polymer matrix composites in which the laminate is both symmetric and balanced with respect to the test direction.
Before conducting ASTM D6742, it is important to read the entire specification. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standard authorities.
