Formula : = constant,E x ,

E is constant of proportionality E is Youngs Modulus or Elastic Modulus ( e.g . Esteel = 200GPa ) V : elastic limit on removal of the load W : yield point ( elongation occurs without any appreciable increase in load ) X : the load reaches its maximum value X-Y : the load falls off and there is a reduction in the cross-sectional area Y : fracture occured

Poisson ratio is a ratio of the lateral strains ( y and z ) to the longitudinal strains (x) will always be constant Symbol : ( nu ) Unit : m/m , mm/mm Formula : Poissons ratio, = - lateral ( -ve sign is normally ignored) longitudinal = - lat

FACTOR OF SAFETY (FS, F.O.S) The must suitable strength of stiffness criterion for any structural element or component is normally some maximum stress or deformation, which must not exceeded. The value of stresses known as maximum allowable working stress Formula : FOS = Deformation; FOS = maximum stress = allowable working stress yield stress allowable working stress = max all yield all

## MODULUS OF RIGIDITY,G , Shear Stress

TEMPERATURE STRESS Temperature increase, a material will expand Temperature decrease, a material will contract Not resisted , material will be stress-free Formula : = Et Where ; = coefficient of linear expansion t = temperature increase or decrease

G 1 , Shear Strain Modulus of Rigidity is a ratio of stress to strain Symbol : G Unit : N/m2 = Pa , N/mm2 Formula : Modulus of Rigidity = Shear Stress Shear Strain

FAILURE OF MATERIAL DUE TO CREEP AND FATIGUE Creep When a material has to support a load for very long period of time, it may continue to deform until a sudden fracture occurs or its usefulness is impaired.

G=

Fatigue When a metal is subjected to repeated cycles of stress or strain, it causes its structure to brake down, ultimately leading to fracture.
