What are the applications of modulus of elasticity?


As the term implies, "Modulus of Elasticity” relates to the elasticity or "flexibility" of a material. The value of modulus of elasticity is very much significant relating to deflection of certain materials used in the construction industry. Take for example the general E value of mild carbon steel is about 200 GPA comPAred to about 70 GPA for aluminum. This simply translate that aluminum is 3 times flexible than steel.

It indicates that how a material will behave under the application of load. An elactic material has more tensile strength and it can be stretched to a greater extent like steel. So basically good to resist tension at the time of bending.
