What is the Shear Modulus of Steel and Silver?

What is the shear modulus of steel and silver? Please help! and state where you got it from...what site did you used? Thanks.

Answer:

There are more than 10,000 different steel alloys that have been specified and used for different purposes. They cover a huge range of mechanical properties. For silver, are you talking about pure silver, or a silver alloy with a additives to improve its mechanical properties? Typical values for mild steel at room temperature are E = 210 GPa, G = 80 GPa (source: 30 years working as a mech. engineer) Wikipedia gives E = 80GPa, G = 30GPa for pure silver (temperature not specified). Silver alloys may be very different from those values. The properties will also depend on the metal forming process (e.g. drawn wire, annealed, etc). NB some alloys with silver in their common name contain no silver at all.
