What is the internal force in link AC? Slide 9 Introduction .Quiz: Statics • Assume link AC has cross-sectional area A=1/8 in2 and load P is equal to 120 lbs.

Plan • Coordinate System • Free Body Diagram • Equilibrium Equations (Statics) • Count number of unknowns and equations • Solution S l ti • Check your solution !! N t Note: • Use variables instead of numbers • Units! Slide 10 Stress and Strain . Given/Wanted + Sketch 0b.Procedure 0a.

Normal Stress • Methods of statics allow us to determine forces and moments in a structure. etc. but how do we determine if a load can be safely supported? • Factors: material.Stress F σ= A Slide 11 Introduction . size. • Need a new concept….

Let’s say L = 100 mm and δ = 0.01 mm.Normal Strain • Normal strain (ε) is defined as the deformation per unit length of a member under axial loading. – – – – Slide 12 ε = 0.01% Introduction . ε= δ L • Normal strain is dimensionless but can be expressed in several ways.01 mm / 100 mm = 1 x 10-4 or 100 x 10-6 ε = 100 μ (read as 100 microstrain) ε = 1 x 10-4 in/in (if using English units) ε = 1 x 10-4 * 100 = 0.
