    - stretch appied to an object which when removed will allow object to revert to its original resting length without permanent deformation;br/>
    - produces a linear "a href="/orthopaedics/stress/">stress/a>/a href="/muscles-tendons/strain/">strain/a>" slope;br/>
    - a href="/orthopaedics/yield-strength-point/">yield point/a> or limit or proportionality, denotes end of elastic region of the curve;br/>
    - if any load along this gradient up to this point is removed, substance will regain its resting shape;br/>
    - strong>elastic limit:/strong> maximum load that a substance can withstand and still resume its original shapebr/>
    - elastic modulus of stainless steel is 12 times EM of cortical (EM of titanium is 6 times of cortical bone) br/>/div>br/>hr/>br/>br/>br/>Last updated by Clifford R. Wheeless, III, MD on Sunday, August 4, 2013 9:59 ambr/>
