Article Preview

This report deals with an innovative method (Own-Weight Cantilever Method) to measure Young’s modulus of flexible thin materials. A newly developed method is based on the large deformation theory considering large deformation behaviors due to own-weight in flexible thin materials. Analytical solutions are derived by using Bessel Functions. By means of measuring the horizontal displacement or the vertical displacement at a free end of a cantilever, Young’s modulus can be easily obtained for various flexible thin and long materials. Measurements were carried out on a piano wire. The results confirm that the new method is suitable for flexible thin wires.
