Lap shear testing schematic. As-manufactured composites are cut to ASTM defined dimensions. Panels are overlapped over a 1-inch-by-1-inch area and held in place by clamps. The panels are heated by microwaves to initiate welding and the test. After testing welding is repeated to demonstrate reproducibility.
