Metals and Alloys - Young's Modulus of Elasticity

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

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]
