Young's Modulus of Elasticity for Metals and Alloys

Elastic properties and Young's modulus for metals and alloys like cast iron, carbon steel and more

Sponsored Links

It is convenient to express the elasticity of a material with the ratio stress to strain, a parameter also termed as the tensile elastic modulus or Young's modulus of the material - usually with the symbol - E.

  • Young's modulus can be used to predict the elongation or compression of an object.

Modulus of Elasticity for some common metals at various temperatures according ASME B31.1-1995:

Metals - Youngs modulus of elasticity diagram

  • 1 psi (lb/in2) = 1 psi (lb/in2) = 144 psf (lbf/ft2) = 6,894.8 Pa (N/m2) = 6.895x10-3 N/mm2
  • T(oC) = 5/9[T(oF) - 32]
