Lame's first parameter (in three dimensions)


In linear elasticity, the Lame parameters are the two parameters that constitute a parametrization of the elastic moduli for homogeneous isotopic media. The first parameter is related to the bulk modulus( the modulus of in-compressibility) and the shear modulus (modulus of rigidity) in three dimensions.
