    Proof resilience: It is the maximum strain energy which is stored within elastic limit. It is also called as strain energy.

    Modulus of resilience: It is defined as the proof resilience per unit volume. It is given as (σ2 / 2E)

    Given: Maximum stress applied = 130 N/mm2, E = 100 x 103 Mpa

    Formula: Modulus of resilience = (σ2 / 2E)


    Substituting the given values, we get

    Modulus of resilience = (σ2 / 2E)

    = (1302) / (2 x 100 x 103)

    = 0.0845 N/mm2

    Modulus of resilience = 0.0845 N/mm2
