Abstract : Some problems associated with the mechanical testing of several classes of non-metals are reviewed. The difficulties encountered in measuring the elastic properties of rubbers, plastics and fibrous materials are considered and tests on the mechanical strength of glass-like materials are discussed. The significance of static and dynamic hardness measurements on non-metals is then considered in detail and the way in which such quantities as rebound hardness may depend on the conditions of test rather than on the properties of the material being investigated is described.
