Material Strength &


Stiffness
Tensile Tests are used to
determine the variety of
material strengths and
characteristics
Materials original
dimensions are recorded
and then mounted on a
Tensile Testing Machine
and slowly loaded
Load (P) is converted to
stress by calculation

Material Strength &


Stiffness
The results are
then plotted as a
stress strain
diagram (opposite)
As seen ductile
materials deform
much more than
brittle ones

pl Proportional limit The
point when the curve first
starts to deviate from
proportionality limit (100%
recovery if the load is
removed) Hookes law
holds
Stress = Youngs Modulus (E)
X Strain

measure of strength of

Engineering Stresses and True


Stresses
Values quoted in the diagram
before corresponded to
engineering stresses as they
considered the original gauge
area of the specimen
True stresses are generally
more than engineering
stresses due to necking
Cross sectional Area must be
measured simultaneously
during testing

Compression & Torsional


Tests
Compression tests are similar to tensile
tests, though a bit difficult due to problems
in distributing the stresses evenly
Torsional Tests are conducted by twisted
solid cylindrical bars and noting torque and
twist angles.
Similar notations as tensile tests are used
in torsion and compression tests
Compression and Tensile strengths are
generally same for materials

Equilibrium
Condition for the equillibrium include
Sum of all forces =0 F = 0
Sum of all moments =0 , M=0

Two kinds of equilibrium


Static Equilibrium
Dynamic Equilibrium

Most of the designed parts are


designed for equilibrium state

Free Body Diagrams


A complex analysis could be simplified
by taking each element, isolating it
and analyzing it.
Treating all members in this manner
would lead to yielding information
regarding the total system.
This approach helps in establishing a
logical way to approach a complex
problem

Shear Force & Bending


Moments
Analytical Tools with structural
analysis to help perform structural
design by determining shear forces
and bending moments at a given
point.
Helps determine the type, size,
material for a given set of loads for a
member for it to function without
failure

Shear Force & Bending


Moments
Shear forces &
bending moments
are both positive and
negative.
Shear force tend to
rotate an element

Forces & Bending Moments

Break the member in segments
(logically)
Determine the Shear Forces & BM of
each segment

Mohrs Circle
Representation to help determine the
principle and Max Shear stresses
through their graphical
representation

Construction of Mohrs Circle has


already been taught to you.It
wont be addressed again

Mohrs Circle
Plot Mohrs Circle with x = 80 MPa
and xy = 50 MPa cw

and xy = 50 MPa cw

Stress Concentration
Ir-regular geometries (hole,
bolt, weld) are known as
stress concentrators.
Stress concentrators are
areas which magnify the
stresses in the part

Stress Concentration Factor


Concentrators cause high
stresses in structure
A ratio (stress concentration
factor) of the max. stress to
the nominal stress is hence
of interest for the designer

Stress Concentration Factor


Factors affecting the stress
concentration factor include the
size of the irregularity depth
(a), width (b) and radius of
curvature ()
Hence for a sharp crack the stress
concentrators may get to infinity
