Strength of Materials- Handout No.3- Deformation due to Axial Load- Dr. Hani Aziz Ameen

3-1 Introduction
In machine design and structure design , the strain is another important factor which can be considered . Strain is defined as the proportional changes in dimensions . Hence, deformation Strain original dimension or ,

L where

........... deformation L .............. original length ............. strain The kinds of strain are classified according to the types of stresses ; thus 1. Tensile Strain If the original length of the bar is L and under effect of the force P , it extends a distance . It is shown in Fig(3-1)

Thus

Fig(3-1) 2. Compressive Strain If the original length of the bar is L and under effect of the force P , it compresses a distance . It is shown in Fig(3-2) Thus L Fig(3-2)

Strain Diagram

The stress strain diagram can be obtained from the tensile test , as shown in Fig.(3-4)

Fig(3-4) The initial part of the tension curve which is recoverable immediately after unloading is termed as elastic range , and the rest of the curve which represents the manner in which the solid undergoes plastic deformation is termed as plastic range.

Strength of Materials- Handout No.3- Deformation due to Axial Load- Dr. Hani Aziz Ameen

3the deformation is directly proportional to the load producing it , since the stress is proportional to the load and the stain is proportional to the deformation , it follows that the stress is proportional to the strain i.e. the ratio stress / strain is a constant for any given material . i.e. or const. * This constant is known as the Modul and is denoted by E . E i.e. E

For shear this constant is known as the modulus of rigidity and is denoted by G , G e :The material must be homogenous in any cross sectianal area. The force applied is axial. The stress and strain remain within elastic limit.

The stresses which are present in a component under normal working conditions are called the working stresses w ( allowable stress a ) , the ratio of ultimate stress u [ or yield stress y ] , to the working stress is the factor of safety , n , Hence ; n where : 1< n < 10

Statically Indeterminate Problems


The statically determinate calculation of the forces and stresses in members is possible considering only the static equation of equilibrium system i.e.

Fx

0 ,

Fy

0 and

M 0

From these equilibrium equations ,one can find three unknown forces only .

Strength of Materials- Handout No.3- Deformation due to Axial Load- Dr. Hani Aziz Ameen

But for statically indeterminate problems , the equations of statics are not sufficient to solve the unknown . We need another relation from elastic deformation to solve the problems and to solve similar problems : 1Draw the free body diagram for the problems and apply the equilibrium equations . Fx 0 , Fy 0 and M 0 Find the geometric relation between bodies deformation 1 2 ( 3 , 4 ,........ etc) 3- Solve the resulting equations in points (1) & (2) to get the unknowns .

The following examples explains the different concepts of deformation due to axial load . Example (3-1) Fig.(3-11) shows the member AC is supported by a round structural steel tie rod BD and a pin at A , neglect the weight of member AC and assume that the ultimate strength ( u ) of structural steel rod is 490 MPa in tension and that the ultimate shear stress ( u ) of the pin is 315 MPa. Using a factor of safety of 3.5 for both tension and shear, find the minimum required diameters of tie rod & the pin .

Example (3-18) Fig.(3-25) shows a bar . Find the reaction produced by the lower support on the bar. Take E = 200GN/m2 . Find also the stresses in the bars.

Fig(3-25) Solution Let R1 = reaction at the upper support R2 = reaction at the lower support when the bar touches it. If the bar MN finally rests on the lower support , we have R1+R2=55000 N For bar LM, the total force R1 = 55000 R2 (tensile) For bar MN , the total force = R2 ( compression) 55000 R 2 * 1.2 m 1 = extension of LM = 110 * 10 6 * 200 * 109 R 2 * 2.4 2 =Contraction of MN = 220 * 10 6 * 200 * 109 In order that N rests on the lower support, we have from compatibility equation 1 2 1.2 /1000 0.0012m 55000 R 2 *1.2 R 2 * 2.4 0.0012 110 *10 6 * 200 *109 220 *10 6 * 200 *109 or 2*(55000 R2)*1.2 2.4 R2=52800 R 2 16500 N R1 = 55 16.5=38.5 N Stress in LM = R1 A1 38.5 110 * 10
