Engineering Fundamentals Refresh: Strength vs. Stiffness vs. Hardness

Understanding the mechanical properties of strength vs. stiffness vs. hardness is foundational in mechanical engineering, yet these properties can often be confused. These properties are related, but there are very important differences between them: Stiffness is an indicator of the tendency for an element to return to its original form after being subjected to a […]
