    Default engineering terminology

    Greetings,

    I'm looking for the best term for "compliance," which is a term used in English for the ratio of unrecovered strain (deformación no recuperada) to applied stress (shear stress, or fuerza cortante in this case).

    I have a "Diccionario para Ingenieros" that suggests the term "deformación" for compliance, but this is an old reference and the testing used to determine compliance is relatively new.

    Thanks in advance-muchas gracias!

    Gary

    How about "flexibilidad" or "distensibilidad"?

    Hope it helps!

    Parece que la palabra "deslizamiento" sirve bien en este caso.

    Gracias!

    I suggest the word "elasticidad".
