Abstract:

The purpose of this research is to provide a guide for investigators in the performance of mechanical tests and the interpretation of test results. A review of the philosophy of testing and the problem areas in studying brittle materials is provided. Research effort consists of investigating mechanical test procedures and analyzing property data with regard to these test procedures, so that the best practice can be determined. Evaluated information is organized into three sections 1 Test philosophy, test techniques and analytical methods 2 Correlation of laboratory tests and recommended procedures 3 Tabular presentation of test data.
