Flexibility: a measure of the amount of deflection an alloy will show for a given stress. (1/elasticity)

Resiliency: the capacity of an alloy to withstand repeated stresses before deforming. (yield strength/modulus of elasticity)

Burnishability: the ability to deform an alloy by the application of pressure. (elongation/hardness)

Toughness: the capacity to withstand repeated stresses before fracturing.
