Relationship between Modulus of Elasticity and Bulk Modulus – V. MohanKumar

Relationship between Modulus of Elasticity (E) and Bulk Modulus (K) 

(WIKIPEDIA)  the above formula gives a relationship between E and K based on poisson’s ratio of the material.

E: Modulus of Elasticity: K: Bulk Modulus; μ: poisson’s ratio

here, the bulk modulus (K) is the ratio between the normal stress and the volumetric strain.

The modulus of elasticity is the ratio between normal stress and normal strain.

Poisson’s ratio is the ratio between the lateral strain and the linear strain and is said to be a constant for a given material.
