Dynamic Young's Modulus Measurements in Metallic Materials: Results of an Interlaboratory Testing Program Academic Article uri icon


  • The results of a round-robin testing study are presented for measurements of dynamic Young's modulus in two nickel-based alloys. The Interlaboratory Testing Program involved six types of apparatus, six different organizations, and specimens from a well-documented source. All the techniques yielded values of dynamic Young's modulus that agreed within 1.6% of each other. For Inconel alloy 600 the dynamic modulus was 213.5 GPa with a standard deviation of 3.6 GPa; for Incoloy alloy 907 the corresponding values were 158.6 and 2.2 GPa, respectively. No significant effect of frequency over the range 780 Hz to 15 MHz was found.
