I'm attempting to calculate the elastic modulus of some steel samples throught tensile testing. Unfortunately I've come accross the common problem of finding a value that is 2 to 3 times lower than the expected value (due to innacurate displacement measurements). Can anyone suggest another method of accurately calculating this value? I'm currently searching for appropriate spring theory formulae whereby the elastic modulus can be calculated from bending the sample around a cylinder of known radius.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
