Standard Test Method for Shear Modulus at Room Temperature
|Publication Date:||10 October 2001|
|ICS Code (Mechanical testing of metals):||77.040.10|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of shear modulus of structural materials. This test method is limited to materials in which, and to stresses at which, creep is negligible compared to the strain produced immediately upon loading. Elastic properties such as shear modulus, Young's modulus, and Poisson's ratio are not determined routinely and are generally not specified in materials specifications. Precision and bias statements for these test methods are therefore not available.
1.2 Values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. SI units are provided for information only.
1.3 t to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
