 Bulk modulus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The bulk modulus K of a fluid or solid is the inverse of the compressibility:
The bulk modulus thus measures the response in pressure due to a change in relative volume, essentially measuring the substance's resistance to uniform compression.
Other moduli describe the material's response to other kinds of strain: the shear modulus describes the response to shear, and Young's modulus describes the response to linear strain.

In materials science, shear modulus S, sometimes referred to as the modulus of rigidity, is defined as the ratio of shear stress to the shear strain: S = shear stress/shear strain = (F/A)/Φ.

 AllRefer.com - Young's modulus (Physics) - Encyclopedia
Young's modulus [for Thomas Young], number representing (in pounds per square inch or dynes per square centimeter) the ratio of stress to strain for a wire or bar of a given substance.
According to Hooke's law the strain is proportional to stress, and therefore the ratio of the two is a constant that is commonly used to indicate the elasticity of the substance.
Young's modulus is the elastic modulus for tension, or tensile stress, and is the force per unit cross section of the material divided by the fractional increase in length resulting from the stretching of a standard rod or wire of the material.

 Elasticity, Elastic Properties
The bulk modulus of a solid influences the speed of sound and other mechanical waves in the material.
For the description of the elastic properties of linear objects like wires, rods, columns which are either stretched or compressed, a convenient parameter is the ratio of the stress to the strain, a parameter called the Young's modulus of the material.
Young's modulus can be used to predict the elongation or compression of an object as long as the stress is less than the yield strength of the material.

 Modulus   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The modulus of elasticity is a constant of proportionality between stress and relative extension (change in length per unit length) for a thin rod exposed to a tensile force.
Bamboo is a natural fiber and the modulus varies across a section, decreasing as you move from the hard primary fibers and towards the center.
It therefore follows, that trying to obtain a value for the modulus by measuring the deflections due to bending is bound to fail.

MODULUS reviewed the existing models and adapted them in view of their integration into a multi-scale, multi-temporal dynamic modelling framework.
In order to demonstrate its generic applicability the MODULUS DSS is applied to two case regions: the Argolidas (Greece) and the Marina Baixa (Spain), but it is applicable in other regions in the Mediterranean where similar or related problems exist.
In its own practical and pragmatic manner the MODULUS project did partake in furthering the scientific foundations and practical tools for rational and sustainable management of land resources in parts of the Northern Mediterranean region that are subject to land degradation and desertification.

The thickness of the asphalt concrete layer is not dependent on the subbase modulus, the roadbed modulus, or the drainage coefficient.
The subbase thickness is not affected by either the AC modulus or the base modulus, as illustrated in Figure 13 and 14 of Appendix A. Since both the AC and base layers protect, not support, the subbase layer, the thickness of the subbase would not be affected by the modulus of either.
Increasing the subbase modulus increases the thickness of the subbase layer, as shown in Figure 15 of Appendix A.

 Measurements of the Elastic Modulus   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Magnetic tape is clamped between two holders, one of which is attached to the normal force sensor installed on the base of the Micro-Tribometer.
The graph of the tensile stresses induced in the tape vs. the tape strain are plotted and the slope of this graph provides the value of the elastic modulus of the tape.
After the elastic modulus of the trilayer tape is obtained, the front (magnetic) and back layers are sequentially removed, and the elastic modulus of each combination of two layers is obtained as described above.
