Modulus of Elasticity Testing

Modulus of Elasticity, also known as Elastic modulus, represents an objects resistance to elastic deformation when force is applied. When viewed on a graph it is the ratio of the stress (force) in a body to the corresponding strain (displacement). Different types of elastic modulus can be measured such as Young’s modulus, Shear modulus and Bulk modulus. Stiffer materials have a higher elastic modulus. United test systems, along with our DATUM software package and our wide selection of grips and extensometers give our customers a highly accurate tool for performing this critical materials test procedure.
