Lamy and Baley found that, where fibers were approximately 35 pm in diameter, elastic moduli were around 39 GPa, whereas a diameter of approximately 5 pm had elastic moduli at around 79 GPa.
However, the data produced by the load level of 40 kN (load Level 1) was not used in the analysis, because the measured deflections and calculated foundation moduli, elastic moduli, and LTE based on the loading showed peculiar trends in comparison to those analyzed with the other levels of loading.
Gassmann equation is commonly applied to predict the elastic moduli of rocks saturated with different fluids.
At 60[degrees]C, the same trend can be observed (table 5): The compounds plasticized with the TDAE and the RAE show the highest tangent delta and the lowest elastic moduli, which would indicate a higher rolling resistance and contribute to worse fuel economy.
The method can be applied to composite materials having two different materials inclusions embedded into a matrix, the former having elastic moduli higher comparatively with the latter, being the 3D case among the theoretical models developed in the technical literature for the case of unidirectional reinforced composite materials (Lim, 2002).
For this category, the theoretical models for effective elastic moduli prediction were natural consequences in the material development and characterization even there is the case of a relatively lack of information and references (Ji, 2004).
Five current automotive grades have Shore hardnesses from 83A to 63D and elastic moduli from 80 to 4000 MPA (11,600 psi to 580,000 psi).
Oscillatory testing provides viscous and elastic moduli data (G" and G' respectively) as presented in Figure 4.
An opportunity to construct an analytical representation of the elastic moduli data evolved recently from an extensive compilation (NISTIR 6853) of the elastic property data for polycrystalline oxide ceramics [1].
