ASTM WK23118

    New Test Method for Determination of Shear Wave Velocity by Bender Element

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.09 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The standard is a method to measure Shear Wave velocity. The measurement can be made in conjunction of running other test on test specimen at the same time.

    The standard can be use to obtain value for maximun Shear Modulus. The method can be useful for Nuclear Power projects.


    Bender Element, Shear Wave Velocity, Shear Modulus

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
