Test Method: SATRA TM10
Longitudinal stiffness - three point bending test
This method is intended to determine the stiffness and the modulus of elasticity of a material. The method is mainly applicable to soling and insole materials used in footwear construction but can be used with any type of semi-rigid sheet material.
A rectangular test specimen is supported across its width at two points. The force, applied midway between the points, required to bend the test specimen by a known amount, is measured and its stiffness modulus and stiffness calculated.
This Test Method does not reference any additional Standards or Test Methods.
