The delamination may result due to poor interlaminar shear strength (ILSS) of composites, which ultimately causes due to weak interfacial strength.
As early as 1939, Casagrande proposed an average shear strength of soil at the liquid limit as 2.65 kPa taking into considering a large spread of values depending on the apparatus used for determining the liquid limit (Casagrande, 1958).
The shear strength test of the glue line was conducted according to ASTM D905-08 (ASTM International 2013b) on a universal testing machine with a capacity of 10 tons.
Based on the JRC, Barton and Choubey [31] established an empirical law of rock joint friction to estimate the shear strength of rock joints.
For ANOVA's validation, normal distributions of shear strength values and variance homogeneity of treatment using Anderson-Darling [AD] and Bartlett [Bt] tests, respectively, were investigated, both at 5% significance.
The mechanical properties of scrap tire crumbs-clayey soil mixtures, such as shear strength, residual shear strength, unconfined compressive strength, and consolidation settlement, were explored by a series of laboratory tests.
The shear strength of soil can be improved by adding certain amount of fiber.
The overall test system is controlled by a computer recording the shear strength, horizontal displacement, vertical displacement and water phase inlet and outlet.

The oxygen percentage close to the surface can increase by a factor of three (x3), achieving shear strengths above 20 MPa.
The aluminium to aluminium joints have been tested using tensometer to obtain the tensile shear strength on each combination of parameters.
The beams also feature 5-gauge wraparound connector plates, two bolts per beam end and grade-5 hardware for greater shear strength. For additional durability, a choice of heavy duty or standard base plates is offered, while all closed tubular bracing is secured with full-fillet welds.
