# Chapter 2: Load, Stress and Strain

The careful text-books measure (Let all who build beware!) The load, the shock, the pressure Material can bear. So when the buckled girder Lets down the grinding span The blame of loss, or murder is laid upon the man. Not on the stuff - The Man! Rudyard Kipling, “Hymn of Breaking Strain”

Hamrock • Fundamentals of Machine Elements

Establishing Critical Section

1. Considers the external loads applied to a machine (e.g. an automobile). 2. Considers the external loads applied to an element within the machine (e.g. a cylindrical rolling-element bearing. 3. Located the critical section within the machine element (e.g., the inner race). 4. Determines the loading at the critical section (e.g., contact stress).

Draw a free-body diagram. and determine all the support reactions. 2. thus dividing the beam into two segments. and use the equilibrium equations to determine the transverse shear force V and the moment M 4. which is assumed to be the x axis. 3. Note the location of the maximum moment. Choose a position x between the origin and the length of the beam l. Resolve the forces into components acting perpendicular and parallel to the beam’s axis. Generally. The origin is chosen at the beam’s left end to ensure that any x chosen will be positive. Draw a free-body diagram of the two segments. it is convenient to show the shear and moment diagrams directly below the free-body diagram of the beam.Shear and Moment Diagrams Procedure for Drawing Shear and Moment Diagrams: 1.

write an expression for the load intensity function q(x) that describes all the singularities acting on the beam. 2. Draw a free-body diagram with all the singularities acting on the beam. Integrate the negative load intensity function over the beam to get the shear force. Resolve the forces into components acting perpendicular and parallel to the beam’s axis.2). Integrate the negative shear force over the beam length to get the moment (see Section 5. Hamrock • Fundamentals of Machine Elements . Draw shear and moment diagrams from the expressions developed. 4.
