Shear Modulus Calculator

Enter the force, initial length, area, and transverse displacement into the calculator to determine the shear modulus.

Shear Modulus Formula

The following equation is used to calculate a shear modulus of a material.

G = F * L / A * D

  • Where G is the shear modulus (pascals)
  • F is the force (N)
  • L is the initial length (m)
  • A is the area being acted on (m^2)
  • D is the transfer displacement (m)


What is a shear modulus?

A shear modulus, also know as rigidity modulus, is the ratio of shear stress to shear strain acting on an object.

How is shear modulus calculated?

Shear modulus is calculated using the formula above. It’s equal to shear stress divided by shear strain.

What’s the difference between shear modulus and Youngs modulus.

Shear modulus is a measure of rigidity of an object. Youngs modulus is a measure of elasticity of an object.
