Young's modulus, also known as the tensile modulus, is a measure of the stiffness of an elastic material and

is a quantity used to characterize materials. It is defined as the ratio of the uniaxialstress over the

uniaxial strain in the range of stress in which Hooke's Law holds.

[1]

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 testsconducted on a sample of the material. In anisotropic materials,

Young's modulus may have different values depending on the direction of the applied force with respect to the

material's structure.

It is also commonly called the elastic modulus or modulus of elasticity, because Young's modulus is the most

common elastic modulus used, but there are other elastic moduli measured, too, such as the bulk modulus and

the shear modulus.

Young's modulus is named after Thomas Young, the 19th century British scientist. However, the concept was

developed in 1727 by Leonhard Euler, and the first experiments that used the concept of Young's modulus in

its current form were performed by the Italian scientist Giordano Riccati in 1782, predating Young's work by 25

years.

[edit]Units

Young's modulus is the ratio of stress, which has units of pressure, to strain, which is dimensionless; therefore,

Young's modulus has units of pressure.

The SI unit of modulus of elasticity (E, or less commonly Y) is the pascal (Pa or N/m or m

1

kgs

2

). The

practical units used are megapascals (MPa or N/mm) or gigapascals (GPa or kN/mm). In United States

customary units, it is expressed as pounds (force) per square inch (psi). The abbreviation ksi refers to

thousands of psi.

[edit]Usage

The Young's modulus calculates the change in the dimension of a bar made of an isotropic elastic material

under tensile or compressive loads. For instance, it predicts how much a material sample extends under

tension or shortens under compression. Young's modulus is used in order to predict the deflection that will

occur in a statically determinate beam when a load is applied at a point in between the beam's supports. Some

calculations also require the use of other material properties, such as the shear modulus, density, or Poisson's

ratio.

[edit]Linear versus non-linear

For many materials, Young's modulus is essentially constant over a range of strains. Such materials are called

linear, and are said to obey Hooke's law. Examples of linear materials are steel,carbon fiber and glass. Non-

linear materials include rubber and soils, except under very small strains.

[edit]Directional materials

Young's modulus is not always the same in all orientations of a material. Most metals and ceramics, along with

many other materials, are isotropic, and their mechanical properties are the same in all orientations. However,

metals and ceramics can be treated with certain impurities, and metals can be mechanically worked to make

their grain structures directional. These materials then become anisotropic, and Young's modulus will change

depending on the direction of the force vector. Anisotropy can be seen in many composites as well. For

example, carbon fiber has much higher Young's modulus (is much stiffer) when force is loaded parallel to the

fibers (along the grain). Other such materials include wood and reinforced concrete. Engineers can use this

directional phenomenon to their advantage in creating structures.

[edit]Calculation

Young's modulus, E, can be calculated by dividing the tensile stress by the tensile strain in the elastic (initial,

linear) portion of the stress-strain curve:

where

E is the Young's modulus (modulus of elasticity)

F is the force exerted on an object under tension;

A

0

is the original cross-sectional area through which the force is applied;

L is the amount by which the length of the object changes;

L

0

is the original length of the object.

[edit]Force exerted by stretched or compressed material

The Young's modulus of a material can be used to calculate the force it exerts under specific strain.

where F is the force exerted by the material when compressed or stretched by L.

Hooke's law can be derived from this formula, which describes the stiffness of an ideal spring:

where

[edit]Elastic potential energy

The elastic potential energy stored is given by the integral of this

expression with respect to L:

where U

e

is the elastic potential energy.

The elastic potential energy per unit volume is given by:

, where is the strain in the material.M

This formula can also be expressed as the integral of Hooke's law:

[edit]Relation among elastic constants

For homogeneous isotropic materials simple relations exist between elastic constants (Young's

modulus E, shear modulus G, bulk modulus K, and Poisson's ratio ) that allow calculating them all as long as

two are known:

[edit]Approximate values

Influences of selected glass component additions on Young's modulus of a specific base glass

Young's modulus can vary somewhat due to differences in sample composition and test method. The rate of

deformation has the greatest impact on the data collected, especially in polymers. The values here are

approximate and only meant for relative comparison.

[hide]Conversion formulas

Homogeneous isotropic linear elastic materials have their elastic properties uniquely determined by any two moduli among these, thus given any two, any other of the

elastic moduli can be calculated according to these formulas.
