Resilience Modulus

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Resilience modulus, abbreviated as \( \mu \) (Greek symbol mu), also called modulus of resilience, is the amount of energy a material can absorb and still return to its origional shape.


Resilience Modulus Formula

\(\large{ \mu = \frac{ \sigma^2 }{ 2 \; E }  }\)   


\(\large{ \mu }\)  (Greek symbol mu) = resilience modulus

\(\large{ \sigma }\)  (Greek symbol sigma) = yield strength

\(\large{ E }\) = Young's modulus
