A new miniature double-shear testing procedure is introduced for the testing of semibrittle materials such as intermetallics. Detailed experiments on samples of pure Al and an Al-5 pet Mg solid solution alloy confirm that the miniature configuration provides consistent and reliable results when using either a circular or a square cross section. In addition, it is demonstrated that the data obtained using miniature specimens are consistent with results from conventional large double-shear specimens and from specimens tested under tensile conditions. The miniature testing technique is used to provide preliminary mechanical data on a Ni-45 pet Al-5 pet Fe intermetallic.
