Ductile Materials:

  • Ductile materials will withstand large strains before the specimen ruptures.
  • Ductile materials often have relatively small Young’s moduli and ultimate stresses.
  • Ductile materials exhibit large strains and yielding before they fail.
  • Steel and aluminum usually fall in the class of Ductile Materials

Brittle Materials:

  • Brittle materials fracture at much lower strains.
  • Brittle materials often have relatively large Young’s moduli and ultimate stresses.
  • Brittle materials fail suddenly and without much warning.
  • Glass and cast iron fall in the class of  Brittle Materials.
