Shear Modulus of Rigidity

Engineering Materials | Strength of Materials

In materials science, shear modulus or modulus of rigidity, denoted by G, or sometimes S or μ, is defined as the ratio of shear stress to the shear strain:

The following chart gives typical values for the shear modulud of rigidity. All data can be recalculated and the is a unit convertsion calculator for unique materials.
