Mechanical Properties
.....
1 of 16
Strength
If a material is able to withhold force.
2 of 16
Hardness
How easily a material can be scratched/ indented. They are also usually brittle, low resistant to impact.
3 of 16
Brittleness
A material which breaks easily or suddenly without any extension first. Opposite to toughness.
4 of 16
Toughness
A material which can absorb impact- opposite of brittleness.
5 of 16
Plasticity
Material which can deform permanently when small forces are applied.
6 of 16
Elasticity
Ability of a material to return to its original form after a load has been applied and removed.
7 of 16
Stiffness
The ability to resist bending.
8 of 16
Malleability
The ability to plasticity deform and shape a material by forging, rolling or by any other method of applying pressure.
9 of 16
Ductility
The ability to be drawn out into a thin wire or threads. It is measured of how easily a material can be worked.
10 of 16
Tensile Strength
The ability to withstand pulling or stretching forces (tension). MN per sq. metre.
11 of 16
Durablity
A general property- the ability to withstand wear and tear through weathering and corrosive attack.
12 of 16
Stability
General property of resistance to changes in shape or size.
13 of 16
Thermal Conductivity
How well a material conducts electricity.
14 of 16
Electrical Conductivity
How well a material conducts electricity. Insulators are opposite.
15 of 16
Corrosion Resistance
The ability to withstand environmental attack and decay.
