In poetry:

O my fellow sufferers, we went out under the trees,
We were in especial bored with male stupidity.
We went forth gathering delicate thoughts,
Our ‘fantastikon’ delighted to serve us.
We were not exasperated with women,
for the female is ductile.

In science:

In ductile and intergranular fracture, the roughness reflects void growth and the presence of grains and inclusions. Our work did not include any of these effects.
Formal Considerations about Fracture: Nucleation and Growth
We expect this length scale to be set by a microscopic scale characteristic of the material: the atomic size in a glass, the size of the nonlinear zone in a ductile material, etc.
Formal Considerations about Fracture: Nucleation and Growth
The magnitude of the displacement necessary to separate the two substrates is much larger in the high temperature simulation than for the low temperature one, suggesting that the material is much more ductile (larger strain to failure) at high temperature than at low temperature.
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
Clearly, different degrees of ductility are possible, depending on the number of activate slip systems and the dislocation mobility at the test temperature.
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
Our simulations show that while Ru is ductile at T=600 K, it is more brittle at T=300 K, separating by a combination of fracture and plasticity.
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
The difference between the ductile/brittle behavior of Au and Ru contact has also been seen in finite element method calculations.45 There are several contributions to the difference in behavior of Au and Ru.
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
At both T=150 K and T=300 K, Au is strongly ductile with a long tail in the force-displacement curve and contact separation occurs with the formation of a neck.

The most general first approach is realized in a variety of cumbersome computer codes based on general laws of mechanics, constitutive equations and some empirical constants. These codes enable a set of problems to be calculated in many important cases of impact and penetration of brittle-ductile composite structures.
