What is toughness?

To determine

To define:

The term 'toughness'.

Explanation

Toughness of a materialdefines as its ability to deform plastically and absorb energy up to fracture point.This property defines the resistance of a material to break in two pieces under the action of impact. Or, we can say, a tough material is difficult to break into two pieces. The property makes the material to be able to deal with adverse conditions or to cope in difficult situations. The term 'toughness'is measured as the amount of energy absorbed per unit volume of the material. In a stress-strain diagram, the toughness is measured as the area under the curve.
