Definitions for "Modulus"
A quantity or coefficient, or constant, which expresses the measure of some specified force, property, or quality, as of elasticity, strength, efficiency, etc.; a parameter.
Coefficient. This term is often used in the calculation of checkdigit.
Tensile stress measured at a particular strain and expressed in psi. Normally defined at 50% or 100% strain.
A unit of measure. For example, when measuring days, a modulus could be 24 for the number of hours in a day. 75 hours would be divided by 24 to give 3 remainder 3, or 3 days and 3 hours. See also modular arithmetic.
An arithmetic operation used in programming whose result is the remainder of a division operation. The plural is moduli.
One of two integer values associated with a foreign type that is in the range 0 remainder modulus 4095 and that is used for data alignment.
the absolute value of a complex number
The modulus of a complex number is the same as its absolute value.
A real, positive quantity that measures the magnitude of some number. For instance, the modulus of a complex number is the square root of the sum of the squares of its components. Often it means, simply, the numerical ("absolute") value of an algebraic quantity .

a part of a RSA public key
In public key crypto, this refers to part of the public key.
Refers to the number of states that a function such as a counter will pass through before returning to its original value. For example, a function that counts from 00002 to 11112 has a modulus of 16 and would be called a modulo-16 or mod-16 counter.
Keywords:  moment, axis, neutral, plastic, section
The Plastic Modulus is obtained as the first moment of area of a section about the plastic neutral axis (equal area axis).
a mathematical structure made from three groups
Numerical value, which represents the physical property of a material, used in calculation or structural computations, and represents the reaction of a material under certain conditions.
