Historical Standard: ASTM C158-02(2007) Standard Test Methods for Strength of Glass by Flexure (Determination of Modulus of Rupture)
SUPERSEDED (see Active link, below)
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of the modulus of rupture in bending of glass and glass-ceramics.
1.2 These test methods are applicable to annealed and prestressed glasses and glass-ceramics available in varied forms. Alternative test methods are described; the test method used shall be determined by the purpose of the test and geometric characteristics of specimens representative of the material.
1.2.1 Test Method A is a test for modulus of rupture of flat glass.
1.2.2 Test Method B is a comparative test for modulus of rupture of glass and glass-ceramics.
1.3 The test methods appear in the following order:
|Test Method A||6 to 9|
|Test Method B||10 to 5|
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 10 and A1.5, A2.3.3, A2.4.3 and A2.5.3.
