Shear stress divided by shear strain; has the units of force per unit area.
the shear modulus is the initial, linear elastic slope of the stress-strain curve in shear. For isotropic materials it is related to Young's modulus E and to the bulk modulus K and Poissonâ€(tm)s ratio.
The modulus of elasticity for an object exposed to shearing stress. It is expressed as the ratio between / and Ï†, where Ï† (the Greek letter phi) stands for the angle of shear.
Physical Properties and Testing Modulus of elasticity in shear.
The ratio of shear stress divided by the corresponding shear strain in a linear elastic material.
The ratio of the shear stress and the angular shear distortion.
the ratio of shear stress to shear strain.
The stress-strain ratio for simple shear in isotropic materials which obey Hooke's law.
In a torsion test, the ratio of the unit shear stress to the displacement caused by it per unit length in the elastic range. Units are Pa or psi.
