Measurements of Dynamic Young's Modulus in Short Specimens with the PUCOT



The piezoelectric ultrasonic composite oscillator technique (PUCOT) was used at frequencies in the range 40 to 150 kHz to measure dynamic Young's modulus for short-length single crystals of copper at temperatures in the range 25 to 650°C and for poly-crystalline copper at room temperature. Corrections to the modulus for variations in l/d (length/diameter) resulted in no loss of precision due to wave velocity dispersion.
