Abstract:

The technique for the measurement of elastic modulus and tensile strength of fine filaments and whiskers, using the Marsh machine, has been evaluated. Influence of heat cycle of diphenyl carbazide, gauge length of the specimen, and stiffness of the machine on the strain measurement has been determined and discussed. Tensile strength and elastic modulus data of whisker phase including NiO, W18O49, W20O58, WO3, CaB6, gamma-TaB, beta-rhombohedral boron, and alpha A12O3, obtained by this technique, has been presented. Problem areas in the characterization of whiskers have been indicated. Author
