Difference between Elastic, Plastic and Rigid materials

S.NO

ELASTIC MATERIAL

PLASTIC MATERIAL

RIGID MATERIAL

1 On Applying Load

Undergoes Deformation

On Applying Load

Undergoes Deformation

On Applying Load

Does not deform.

2 On removal of Load

Comes back to its original size and shape

On removal of Load

Does Not come back to its original shape and size

On removal of Load

Shape and size remains unchanged.

3 Deformation is Temporary Deformation is permanent No deformation.

When a material is in elastic stage , the resistance force offered by the material is directly proportional to the deformation brought about on the material by the external loading.
