WHAT DOES YOUNG'S MODULUS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Young's modulus

Young's modulus, also known as the tensile modulus or elastic modulus, is a measure of the stiffness of an elastic isotropic material and is a quantity used to characterize materials. It is defined as the ratio of the stress along an axis over the strain along that axis in the range of stress in which Hooke's law holds. In solid mechanics, the slope of the stress–strain curve at any point is called the tangent modulus. The tangent modulus of the initial, linear portion of a stress–strain curve is called Young's modulus. It can be experimentally determined from the slope of a stress–strain curve created during tensile tests conducted on a sample of the material. In some materials, Young's modulus may have different values depending on the direction of the applied force with respect to the material's structure. Young's modulus is the most common elastic modulus, sometimes called the modulus of elasticity, but there are other elastic moduli measured, too, such as the bulk modulus and the shear modulus. It is named after the 19th-century British scientist Thomas Young.

Definition of Young's modulus in the English dictionary

The definition of Young's modulus in the dictionary is a modulus of elasticity, applicable to the stretching of a wire etc, equal to the ratio of the applied load per unit area of cross section to the increase in length per unit length E.
