Modulus Of Elasticity

MODULUS OF ELASTICITY M024

Also called Young’s modulus. The ratio of unit stress to unit strain within the elastic limit of the metal without fracturing the part.

The term generally refers to the stiffness of the pump shaft. The higher the modulus the stiffer the shaft.

Most pump shaft materials have similar modulus numbers so changing the shaft material seldom increases the shaft’s reliability.
