ductility

[duktil′itē]
the property of a material of having a large elastic range and tending to deform before failing from stress.

ductility (duktil´itē),

n the property of a material that allows permanent deformation under tension without rupture. It is measured as a percentage increase in length on rupture compared with original length and is termed percentage elongation, or elongation.

The superfine grain size improved the compatibility of deformation that helped for both of the strength and ductility.
The modeling results were also validated against the experimental results in terms of the ductility and fracture location.
However, current impurity-containing hypoeutectic Al-Si cast alloys have yielded only modest improvements in ultimate tensile stress (UTS) (not in excess of 180 MPa) and ductility (roughly 10%).
Since in this experiment, the degree of connection link rotation is studied, and this study aims to investigate and compare the stiffness, strength and ductility of the proposed system is convergent and divergent braced systems, thus its results will not be expressed and it is noted that this test used to confirm the modeling process which the analysis results confirm this issue.
When the deformation velocity exceeds 1000 mm/min, it is known that the ductility deformation changes into the brittle fracture.
