Tension and in-plane shear tests have been carried out to measure the in-plane mechanical properties of T800H/3633 CFRP woven laminates at room temperature, liquid nitrogen temperature (77 K) and liquid helium temperature (4 K). Tensile and shear tests were conducted according to the following JIS standard procedures: JIS K 7073 for tensile tests, and JIS K 7079 for shear tests. The specimen geometry utilized in the determination of the fiber-aligned strength included a dog-boned shape and wedge tabs. A two-dimensional finite element analysis was also used to study the stress distributions within the dog-bone shaped specimens and to interpret the experimental measurements.
