The aim of this study was to determine the para-aramid fabric shear by the pull-out method. The fabric sample dimensions and the number of pull-out ends were identified as important parameters. Fabric shear depended on fabric density. Fabric shear strength increased when the number of pulled ends increased. When the fabric length increased, fabric shear strength generally increased. The number of pulled ends and the fabric sample dimensions influenced the fabric shear rigidity. Shear jamming angles were found based on the number of pulled ends. The results showed that para-aramid fabric shear could be measured by yam pull-out test.
