Much has been said and written about the effect of speed of testing on ferrous and non-ferrous materials, but there is an appalling lack of reliable data on the effect of testing speed on most non-metallic materials. Here the field of operation is wide because of the tremendous variability in the response of glass on one hand and rubber on another. This symposium is only a start toward filling this void and in this respect supplements the 1948 Symposium which also included some information on non-metallic materials. The testing speeds employed encompass very slow to very fast straining rates. The accumulation of data does not represent the last word on the subject. There is much more work to be done but this will establish a foundation upon which to build further.
