the maximum stress a wire or spring can withstand without permanent deformation
The maximum stress that can be applied to a body without resulting in permanent deformation - the rock reverts to its original shape after the stress is removed. In the case of a fault or a fold the elastic limit is exceeded and the deformation becomes a permanent structure of the rock.
The maximum stress to which a given solid can be subjected without experiencing plastic deformationâ€”that is, without being permanently deformed.
The maximum stress that a material can sustain before permanent deformation
The limiting stress beyond which a body will suffer permanent change in geometry.
Applied to materials for aircraft construction, the limit of stress or force which can be exerted on a body without causing permanent distortion of the stressed body.
Maximum level of elastic deformation of a material without rupture.
Greatest stress that can be applied to a material without causing permanent deformation. For metals and other materials that have a significant straight-line portion in their stress/strain diagram, elastic limit is approximately equal to proportional limit. For materials that do not exhibit a significant proportional limit, elastic limit is an arbitrary approximation (the apparent elastic limit).
The point of elongation that a web material obtains under tension where it will not return to the original length when the tension is removed. Permanent web deformation takes place when the elastic limit has been reached or exceeded.
Maximum stress that a material will withstand without permanent deformation. See Yield Strength
The maximum stress a metal can withstand without any permanent strain (deformation) remaining when the load is removed.
The limit to which a material can be bent or pulled out of shape and still return to its former shape and dimensions.
The greatest stress a material is capable of sustaining without permanent strain remaining after complete release of the stress.
The maximum load per unit of area (usually stated as pounds per square inch) that may be applied without producing permanent deformation. It is common practice to apply the load at a constant rate of increase and also measure the increase of length of the specimen at uniform load increments. The point at which the increase in length of the specimen ceases to bear a constant ratio to the increase in load, is called the proportional limit. The elastic limit will usually be qualto or slightly higher than the proportional limit.
(See proportional limit.)
when a material is stretched beyond the point where it can return to its original shape and size Electric motor a component that provides rotary movement when connected to a battery Electrical Component a part of a product that is used in an electrical circuit e.g. a bulb, a motor, a buzzer
A material behaves elastically up to its elastic limit. For forces greater than this, the material will be permanently deformed. Hooke's Law
That intensity of stress at which the ratio of stress over strains commences to show a decided change. For wrought-iron it is from twelve to fifteen tons.
The point beyond which the deformations of a structure or material are no longer purely elastic.
The maximum stress that a body can withstand without permanent deformation.
The highest stress that can be applied without producing permanent deformation.
Stress limit above which permanent deformation will take place within the material.
The maximum stress that a material is capable of sustaining without any permanent strain (deformation) remaining upon complete release of the stress.
The load point at which a material will not return to its original shape and size after the load has been released.
the point at which any additional force to an object will permanently deform its shape.
the load at which a material will no longer return to its original form when the load is released.
Maximum stress to which a material may be subjected without permanent set.
The maximum stress that a material will stand before permanent deformation occurs. See springback.
Maximum stress to which a spring can be stressed without taking a permanent set.
The maximum stress to which a material may be subjected with no permanent deformation after release of the applied load.
The largest stress which a material can withstand without being permanently deformed.
The limit of distortion, by bending, stretching, etc., that a body can undergo and yet return to its original form when relieved from stress.
The maximum stress a material can sustain without any permanent strain (deformation) remaining upon complete release of the stress. See also proportional limit.
The point at which a mesh when under tension will no longer return to its original size.
The elastic limit is the maximum stress a material can undergo at which all strains are recoverable. (i.e., the material will return to its original size after removal of the stress). At stress levels below the elastic limit the material is said to be elastic.
