Abstract

Elastic moduli for tension and shear were defined in Chapter 3 as E = σ / ε and G = τ / γ respectively. E is commonly called Young’s modulus and G the modulus of rigidity. Two further elastic constants can be defined for materials operating under elastic systems of stress: Poisson’s ratio and the bulk modulus.
