Standard Test Method for Poisson's Ratio at Room Temperature
|Publication Date:||10 April 1997|
|ICS Code (Mechanical testing):||19.060|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of Poisson's ratio from tension tests of structural materials at room temperature. This test method is limited to specimens of rectangular section and to materials in which and stresses at which creep is negligible compared to the strain produced immediately upon loading.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport 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.
