This test method covers the measurement of the fundamental resonant frequencies for the purpose of calculating the dynamic Young's modulus, the dynamic shear modulus (also known as the modulus of rigidity), and the dynamic Poisson's ratio of refractory materials at ambient temperatures. Specimens of these materials possess specific mechanical resonant frequencies, which are determined by the elastic modulus, mass, and geometry of the test specimen. Therefore, the dynamic elastic properties can be computed if the geometry, mass, and mechanical resonant frequencies of a suitable specimen can be measured. The dynamic Young's modulus is determined using the resonant frequency in the flexural mode of vibration and the dynamic shear modulus is determined using the resonant frequency in the torsional mode of vibration. Poisson's ratio is computed from the dynamic Young's modulus and the dynamic shear modulus.
Although not specifically described herein, this method can also be performed at high temperatures with suitable equipment modifications and appropriate modifications to the calculations to compensate for thermal expansion.
The values are stated in SI units and are to be regarded as the standard.
