Abstract : The Young's modulus and shear modulus of arc-cast zirconium carbide-graphite alloys were measured as a function of graphite content and were found to be dependent upon the microstructure of these alloys. Attempts to fit several theoretical analyses to the data were not successful. The simplified physical models from which these analyses were derived limit their usefulness in predicting elastic behavior for materials having complex microstructures. (Author)
