Ductility is the physical property of being capable of sustaining large plastic deformations without fracture (in metals, such as being drawn into a wire). It is characterized by the material flowing under shear stress.


A ductile material is any material that fails under shear stress (as opposed to brittle fracture).

Ductility is the physical property of being capable of sustaining large plastic deformations without fracture (in metals, such as being drawn into a wire).
A ductile material is any material that yields under shear stress (as opposed to brittle fracture, which yields under normal stress).
In glacial ice this zone is at approximately 30 metres depth.
News Item: Pure Copper Six Times Stronger than Normal, with No Loss in Ductility (421 words)
The reduction in grain size is responsible for the increase in strength, with an increasing number of grain boundaries hindering the movement of dislocations.
Ductility was introduced into the material by inducing abnormal or non-uniform grain growth, which resulted in approximately 20-25% of the grains growing to a larger size, producing a bimodal grain size distribution.
The combination of very small and large grains gives the material its strength and ductility properties, which is important in the forming and processing of high strength copper components.
