Plastic Deformation
The object will remain deformed when the load is removed
1 of 10
Elastic Deformation
Object will return to it's original shape when the load is removed
2 of 10
Brittle
Undergoes little or no plastic deformation before breaking
3 of 10
Ductile
Can be drawn into long thin wires or sheets whilst maintaining their strength
4 of 10
Malleable
Can be hammered or rolled into other shapes but will not keep their strengths
5 of 10
Hard
Not readily/easily scratched or indented
6 of 10
Stiff
Requires a large force to produce a small deformation
7 of 10
Tough
Can absorb a lot of energy before breaking
8 of 10
