Shear testing is performed to determine the shear strength of a material. It measures the maximum shear stress that may be sustained before a material will rupture. Shear is typically reported as MPa (psi) based on the area of the sheared edge.
Shear testing is commonly used with adhesives and can be used in either a tensile or comprehensive method.
