Elasticity: part 2 – the elastic parameters

Home / Elasticity: part 2 – the elastic parameters
This tool provides some basic calculations of the elastic parameters of an isotropic elastic material with given two independent parameters using the classical relationships of continuum mechanics (Fjaer et al., 2008; Fung, 1977; Gurtin, 1982).
