Strain hardening exponent
Additional recommended knowledge
In the formula σ = K ε n, σ represents the applied stress on the material, ε is the strain and K is the strength coefficient. The value of the strain hardening exponent lies between 0 and 1. A value of 0 means that a material is a perfectly plastic solid, while a value of 1 represents a 100% elastic solid. Most metals have an n value between 0.10 and 0.50.
