Monte Carlo transfer matrix evaluation of the elastic constants at the percolation threshold of the random-bond honeycomb lattice, with widths of up to 96 and lengths of about two million lattice constants (roughly 200 hours CDC Cyber 205 vector computer time) gave a critical exponent T=3.96±0.04 with a logarithmic correction term. This exponent agrees well with the scaling hypothesis T=t+2v=3.97, relating T to the two-dimensional conductivity exponent.
