Ductilim′eter, an instrument for measuring the ductility of metals; Ductil′ity, capacity of being drawn out without breaking.
Some metals,p. 81 like cast iron, have absolutely no ductility.
As regards both tensile strength and ductility not only the quantity but the distribution of the graphite is of great importance.
A small quantity of tin, alloyed with silver, destroys its ductility.
It is desirable that the pliability and ductility be preserved at as low a temperature as possible.
What I mean is docility, ductility, sequacity—if there is any such word.
It is easy to purify it, and restore its ductility, by separating it from the Regulus of Antimony.
On the other hand, their malleability, ductility, and power of resisting oxygen is generally diminished.
Its combination of ductility with strength and hardening power has given it very extended use for the armour of war-vessels.
In its employment for vessels, we ought always to exhibit its ductility, and in its employment for windows, its transparency.
