Standard Test Method for Tensile Strength and Young's Modulus for High-Modulus Single-Filament Materials (Withdrawn 1998)


1.1 This test method covers the preparation, mounting, and testing of high-modulus single-filament materials [over > 21 10 9 Pa (> 3 106 psi)] for the determination of tensile strength and Young's modulus, at room temperature.

1.2 This test method is limited to single filaments utilizing a fixed gage length at least 2000 times longer than the nominal filament diameter.

1.3 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
