Bulk Modulus (Up To 8 Temperatures)

Test ID  

A dried sample of approximately 1 gram is loaded into a sample cell and placed in the PVT apparatus. An isothermal heating scan is performed on the sample. Readings of volume change are recorded by an LVDT for during the pressure sweep for the temperatures selected. Volumetric stress strain curves are used to calculate the bulk modulus of the material. Included in the test price is a solid density measurement, as described in test [D-010].    
Data may be gathered while cooling the specimen.  
The bulk modulus at different temperatures in the solid state is extracted.This data appears in Matereality as Bulk Modulus.

Bulk modulus is used in FEA calculations, and is a measure of the ability of a substance to withstand changes of volume when under compression on all sides.
