Significance and Use
5.2 The data obtained may be used for quality control, research and development and establishment of optimum processing conditions. The data are not intended for use in design or predicting performance.
1.1 This test method describes the use of linear controlled-rate-of-loading in three-point bending to determine the elastic modulus of isotropic specimens in the form of rectangular bars using a thermomechanical analyzer (TMA).
1.2 This test method provides a means for determining the elastic modulus within the linear region of the stress-strain curves (see Fig. 1). This test is conducted under isothermal temperature conditions from –100 to 300 °C.
