There are three ways to calculate the elastic modulus: (1) the tangent modulus, (2) the secant modulus, and (3) the chord modulus. The static compressive elastic modulus studied in this experiment is actually the concrete's chord modulus.
The strain results are used for chord modulus and Poisson's ratio  calculations necessary to develop, integrate and implement predictive computational models for CFRPs composites linking the materials design, molding process and final performance requirements for optimal design and manufacturing of CFRP automotive systems.
From tensile tests, ultimate tensile strength, strain at maximum load (as defined in ISO 527-1 Standard) and tensile chord modulus of elasticity (Young's modulus) were calculated; a strain range of 0.003 to 0.005 mm/mm was used for chord modulus calculation.
