A measure of film stiffness.

A measure of stiffness. It refers to a material's ability to resist bending or stretching. The higher the modulus, the stiffer the fiber.

Alternate term for modulus of elasticity.

A number, coefficient, or quantity that measures a force, function, or effect.

Stress at a given strain. Also tensile strength at a given elongation.

A measure of the stiffness of a material during the first part of its bending process, expressed in N/mm2 or MPa. The higher the reported value, the stiffer the material.

The force required to obtain a certain elongation. Measured in pounds per square inch of cross section of the sample. Low to moderate modulus materials make the best caulks and sealants. (See " Shore Hardness")

Properties of elasticity.

(physics) a coefficient that expresses how much of a specified property is possessed by a specified substance

The physical measurements of stiffness in a material, which equals the ratio of applied load (stress) to the resultant deformation of a material, such as elasticity or shear. A high modulus indicates a stiff material.

modulus of elasticity: measure of strain to stress (deformation to applied force)

Refers to one of several measurements of stiffness or resistance to deformation.

Tensile stress at a specified elongation. (Usually 100% elongation for elastomers)

A property of elastomers (analogous to the same property of metals) which is the ratio of stress to strain in the elastomer at some loading condition. Unlike the modulus of metals, the modulus of elastomers is non-linear over a range of loading and ambient conditions. This fact makes the understanding of elastomers and their properties important in the understanding of the performance of elastomeric vibration and shock isolators.

The property of elastic fabric which allows Airsocks to provide constant graded compression within specific sizes

The ratio of strength to stress.

A term used to describe the elasticity of sealants. The amount of pressure required to compress or stretch a cured sealant specimen.

in the physical testing of rubber, the load necessary to produce a stated percentage of elongation. Compression, or shear.

The stiffness of an elastomer, measured typically as the force required to stretch a strip of the elastomer to a given extent. Modulus is closely related to hardness.

In packaging, used to denote the degree to which a film or sheet resists stretching before it reaches its elastic limit when an external force or stress is applied.

the ability of a sample of a material to resist deformation. Modulus is usually expressed as the ratio of stress exerted on the sample to the amount of deformation. For example, tensile modulus is the ration of stress applied to the elongation which results from the stress. (see: elongation, stress)

Force per unit cross sectional area required to distort rubber to a given extent. In extension it is an extensional or tensile modulus, and in compression a compression modulus. Conventionally, the moduli are calculated using the initial cross sectional area, i.e. the area before distortion.

The measure of a fiber's stiffness or resistance to bending. The higher the modulus, the stiffer the material.

The measure of stretch or elasticity of a fabric. High Modulus = low stretch.

The amount of force per square inch to stretch a test piece to a given elongation. Typically measured @ 100% elongation.

Measured stress at 100% elongation.

A measure of the ratio of load (stress) applied to the resultant deformation of a material, such as elasticity or shear.

This is a measure that tries to explain how a fabric reacts when it tensioned and relaxed. It is used to expain things like snow and wind loads, elasticity, memory, stretch, and shrinkage.

The ratio of change in stress to change in strain following the removal of crimp from the material being tested; i.e., the ratio of the stress expressed in either force per unit linear density or force per unit area of the original specimen, and the strain expressed as either a fraction of the original length or percentage elongation.

The amount of stress required to create a certain amount of elongation.

The measure of stretch or elasticity of a fabric. The number associated with modulus is the amount of load in grams it takes to initiate stretch in a 1000 denier yarn, a higher number reflects lower stretch.

in engineering, modulus is the ratio of stress to strain but in rubber technology modulus is the force per unit area required to achieve a particular elongation, such as the M-100 (100% modulus), M-200, etc; these tensile moduli are indicators of the rubber's resistance to deformation, but are used most often as QC measurements

Used to refer to a measure of some physical or mechanical property of a material. The modulus is generally constant for any material, and can be used to calculate a material's response to external conditions, such as applied forces. One common example is Young's Modulus, which expresses the elastic response of a meterial.

A term used to describe the load required to cause a specified percentage of elongation. It is usually expressed in PSI or kilos per square centimeter.

Or with regard to the fibers used to make fishing rods, "Modulus of Elasticity," refers to the relationship between stress and strain. In more simple terms relative to rod building, it usually defines the stiffness to weight ratio of the fibers used to construct the rod blank. Generally speaking, the higher the modulus of the fiber used to make the blank, the lighter the resulting blank can be for any given stiffness.

A low modulus glove is easy to stretch and flex, whereby a high modulus glove is hard to move and stretch.

the load in pounds per square inch (or kilos per square centimeter) of initial cross-sectional area necessary to produce a stated percentage-elongation which is used in the physical description of plastics (stiffness).

Modulus relates to elasticity. A low-modulus exam glove has considerable stretchiness and flexibility, while a high-modulus glove is less supple and elastic.

Modulus of elasticity which is a numerical value reflecting a material's resistance to deformation. A film with a high "modulus" is hard to stretch or elongate.

A measure of a material's ability to resist stretch. Initial modulus is usually expressed as grams of load per unit stretch for a certain fiber denier. The higher the initial modulus, the less the fiber will stretch.

For elastomer, this is the tensile stress (in psi) at 100% elongation.

The tensile stress force in p.s.i. required to produce a specified increase in material length (usually 100% elongation).

A coefficient or numerical measure often used in the calculation of checkdigit. (See the page of Checkdigit)

The Elastic Modulus is a geometric property and is given by the first moment of area of a section about the elastic neutral axis.
