Abstract : During the tests on the U.S.S. PRESTON, a great number of strain readings were taken at designated stations throughout the ship. To determine the true stress developed in the metal at these strain gage stations, it is necessary to know the true modulus of elasticity of the metal under strain. For this reason sample pieces were taken from the ship and tests were conducted for the purpose of determining this modulus of elasticity. (Author)
