Key Terms and Concepts
- Identify and define the features of a stress-strain curve, including stress, strain, elastic region, elastic modulus, elastic limit, plastic region, ultimate strength, and fracture/rupture.
- Acquire stress-strain data and calculate the elastic modulus from stress-strain data.
- State Hooke’s Law and define spring constant.
- Apply the Hooke’s Law along with the definitions of stress, strain, and elastic modulus to calculate the deformations of structures.
