Stiffness is the resistance to deformation from an applied force(N/mm)

 

 

Strength (Utlimate Tensile Strength-  UTS)  is the streess level at which a material has a reduction load carrying capacity.  Once the stress from the applied load hits the UTS the material is considered to have failed (material failure in one application)
