    ASTM B223

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the modulus of elasticity of thermostat metals at any temperature between - 300 and + 1000°F (- 185 and 540°C) by mounting the specimen as a cantilever beam and measuring the deflection when subjected to a mechanical load.

    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 become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
