Young mo·du·lus

(yŭng),
a type of modulus of elasticity that specifies the force applied to a body in one direction, per unit of cross-sectional area of the body perpendicular to that direction, divided by the fractional change in length of the body in that direction.

Knowing the modal numbers, by simply measuring the resonance frequencies, geometry, and density of the specimen, the Young modulus can be determined from (1) as
where [E.sub.L] is longitudinal Young modulus, [E.sub.T] is transverse Young modulus, v is in plane Poisson ratio, [G.sub.P] is in plane shear modulus and [G.sub.T] is transverse shear modulus.
