Therefore, the shear modulus may not be precisely calculated using the data obtained from the low-order mode frequencies, particularly when combining flexural and longitudinal vibration analyses using Equation 10.
It would be of genuine interest to see Mr Hough's data which differs from that of our own regarding lens thickness profile and modulus as there are no reports currently available in the literature.
The tensile modulus can be thought of as the representing the instantaneous or "zero-time" response of the material.
The Young's modulus of the coating can be calculated from the stress-strain behavior of a sandwiched specimen in the 3PB test by applying the composite plate theory, which assumes that the multilayered structures are composed of numerous laminas and that the mechanical properties of each lamina are homogeneous and isotropic.
The effects of major parameters affecting PFWD modulus results are reported as it follows:

Takayanagi had to use an anisotropic factor developed by Tsai-Halpin to explain the abnormally high modulus of nylon 6/PPTA blends or block copolymer composites (31).
The recent experiment demonstrated that "you can have high bulk modulus even if you don't have a diamondlike structure or bonding," says John E.
The starting point for this development is the idea that the modulus approach is essentially an attempt to estimate the solidification times of various parts of the casting prior to attaching the rigging.
