The forming Radius is the minimum radius that a piece of metal can be bend. This is known as MBR (Minimum Bend radius) and may also be quoted as a Formability Number which is the MBR divided by the thickness of the metal
Elongation is the ratio of the increase in length of an original specified length to the final length (ie How much it streched before breaking) If the material was 100mm long between two points and under outwards tension, when the material breaks. If the measurement between the original two points is now 110mm, then the elongation would be 10%
