Room-temperature stress-strain curves are presented for compression, tension, and shear loadings on four compositions of tungsten carbide with cobalt binder. Values of modulus of elasticity, modulus of rigidity, Poisson's ratio in the elastic region, ultimate strength, density, and hardness for the four materials are tabulated.
