Young's Modulus as a Function of Wire Diameter


IT was observed that, during annealing, the modulus of elasticity of copper wires may be appreciably lowered1. This phenomenon has been explained by Barrett2 as resulting from alterations in their textures. As has been shown by Schmid and Wassermann3, most metals with a face-centred cubic structure such as copper, silver or gold exhibit a double fibre… (More)
