Shear Modulus

HISTORY

# Material Rigidity Calculator

getcalc.com's **Shear Modulus (G) Calculator** is an online mechanical engineering tool for material analysis to measure the rigidity (ratio of shear stress (τ) & shear strain (γ)) of the material, in both US customary & metric (SI) units.

## Definition & Formula

**Shear Modulus**, often represented by the symbol G, also known as modulus of rigidity, is a physical quantity to express the rigidity (ratio of shear stress (τ) & shear strain (γ)) of material. It's an one of a most important functions in strength of materials, frequently used to analyse the rigidity of a solid material.
