## Mechanical Properties of Metals

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
Stress and strain: What are they and why are they used instead of load and deformation?

Elastic behavior: When loads are small, how much deformation occurs? What materials deform least?
Plastic behavior: At what point do dislocations cause permanent deformation? What materials are most resistant to permanent deformation?

Toughness and ductility: What are they and how do we measure them?

Tension Tests

## Engineering stress and engineering strain

F = Applies force in N A0 = Original c/s area in mm2 or m2 = Engineering stress in N/m2 or MPa

## l0 = Original length in mm or m li = Instantaneous length in mm or m = Engineering strain. It has no unit

Compression Tests
It is similar to tension test only nature of force is reverse. It is conducted for brittle materials.

## Geometric Considerations of the Stress State

Elastic deformation
Stress- strain behavior

## E = modulus of elasticity in N/m2 or MPa

E on atomic scale

Effect of temperature on E

Shear Modulus

ANELASTICITY
Time dependent elastic behavior is known as

anelasticity Time dependent microscopic and atomstic processes that are attendant to the deformation For metal normally small and is often neglected however for some polymeric materials its magnitude is significant

Plastic Deformation
Yielding and yield strength

For non linear material behavior 0.002 stain off-set line is used to find yield strength

## Yield strength, tensile strength and ductility are important

mechanical properties.

## These properties are sensitive to any prior deformation,

presence of impurity and type of heat treatment. Modulus of elasticity is insensitive to these treatments. With increasing temperature YS, TS and E decreases as ductility increases. where

Resilience
Capacity

of material to absorb energy when it is deformed elastically and then, upon unloading, to have this energy recovered.

TOUGHNESS

## True stress and true strain

T = true stress in Mpa
Ai = instantaneous c/s area T = true strain
