Good practice guides

Elastic modulus measurement GPG98

The aim of this Good Practice Guide (GPG) is to provide an overview of some of the issues
associated with making accurate elastic modulus measurements from static and dynamic tests. 

The test methods described in the document can be can be applied to a range of materials. The tensile test method described is probably more suitable for metallic materials and some composites, and the dynamic methods for both metals and ceramics.
