## Octahedral Stress Theory

Theories of failure provide a relationship
between the strength of material subjected to
complex state of stress with the material
properties obtained from simple test (Tensile)
Strength of material
subjected to complex
state of stress

Strength of material
subjected to uniaxial
state of stress

## Failure is assumed to occur whenever the

octahedral shear stress for any stress state
equals or exceeds the octahedral shear
stress for the simple tension-test specimen
at failure.

## Octahedral Stress Theory

Criteria used to predict the failure of ductile materials
are usually calledyieldcriteria.
Failure is due to bulk yielding causing permanent
deformations that are objectionable.
Yielding is a shear stress phenomenon. That means
materials yield because the shear stresses on some
planes causes the lattice crystals to slide like a deck
of cards.
In pure tension or compression, maximum shear
stresses occur on 45-degree planes these stresses
are responsible for yielding and not the larger normal
stresses.

## Octahedral Stress Theory

Octahedral stresses we call
the normal and shear stresses
that are acting on some
specific planes inside the
stressed body, the octahedral
planes. If we consider the
principal directions as the
coordinate axes, then the
plane whose normal vector
forms equal angles with the
coordinate system is called
octahedral plane. There are
eight such planes forming an
octahedron as it is illustrated.

## Octahedral Stress Theory

Octahedral normal stresses are normal to the
octahedral surfaces, and are equal to the
average of the principal stresses.
Octahedral shear stresses lie on the octahedral
surfaces.

## Octahedral Stress Theory

For plastic deformation (i.e., yielding) of a
material, shear stress in octahedral planes play
a crucial role and it is only possible to distort a
material whenever that shear stress (now, we
call it as octahedral shear stress) reaches a
critical value. This is precisely the idea of failure
criterion of octahedral stress theory.

## Octahedral Stress Theory

We can determine the octahedral shear stress as
follow:
Let us consider the stress state on any of the
octahedral plane, such as ABC as shown in fig

## Octahedral Stress Theory

We define the area of any one of the octahedral
planes ABC, as A. If normal vector to this plane is
define as en
then

So,

## Octahedral Stress Theory

Therefore , the total resultant force acting on
triangular faces (i.e., OAB, OBC and OCA) can be
written as:

## Whenever principle stresses satisfy the above

relation, yielding is said to be initiate.
