What is Resilience?

Resilience:Ability of the material that can absorb energy without undergoing any shape change is called as Resilience.


Determination of Resilience:

  • The resilience of the material will be determined by calculating the area under stress v/s strain curve up to an elastic point.
  • Resilience says about the strength and ductility properties of the material.
  • If a material possesses higher the resilience means it will absorb more energy against shape change.

Examples of Resilience are shown below.

  • Steel

Retains the shape and does not fail immediately.
