9223 Modulus of Elasticity Modulus of Rigidity and Poissons Ratio

The modulus of elasticity (E) (also called Young's modulus) is the slope of the stress-strain curve in its initial, elastic region before yielding occurs. The modulus is a measure of a material's stiffness (or resistance to elastic deformation) and its buckling strength, and varies slightly by alloy since it is a function of the alloying elements. It can be estimated by averaging the moduli of the alloying
