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

    - The formula used to calculate proof resilience = (σ2 / 2E) x volume

    Modulus of resilience: It is defined as the proof resilience per unit volume.

    - The formula to calculate modulus of resilience = (σ2 / 2E)
