Why Titanium?

 

AASHTO T 336:

AASHTO T 336 requires a calibration standard composed of essentially linearly elastic, non-corroding, non-oxidizing, nonporous, and nonmagnetic material with a known thermal coefficient in the range of 9 to 18 µ-strains /°C within the range of 10 to 50 °C.

 

The Titanium Calibration Standard:

Titanium has a coefficient of thermal expansion of about 9.2 µ-strains /°C.

 

The Thermal Coefficient of Concrete:

The thermal coefficient for concrete is approximately 9.2 µ-strains /°C.
