Property of materials; the ratio of stress to strain for different modes of elastic deformation. In linear, isotropic elastic materials, only four constants are needed to characterize fully the elastic behaviour of the material: Young's modulus, E, shear or rigidity modulus. G. bulk modulus. K, which have the units of stress N m 2 and Poisson
