# STRENGTH OF MATERIALS

## ENGR. JOHN LESTER L. MORILLO BS CHE / ADAMSON UNIVERSITY

SIMPLE STRESS
Simple stress is the force per unit area.

P A
Where: P = force A = cross-sectional area = stress

SIMPLE STRESS
Shearing stress ( or Tangential stress ) is a stress caused by forces acting along or parallel to the area resisting the forces. Bearing stress is one which is caused by forces acting perpendicular to the area resisting the forces. Normal stresses, like tensile stress and compressive stress are examples of bearing stress.

SIMPLE STRAIN
Simple strain is the ration of deformation or elongation to the original length.

L
Where: = strain

## = elongation L = original length

HOOKEs LAW
Hookes Law states that within elastic limit the stress is proportional to strain, thus:

P A

## where: E = modulus of elasticity of the material

or Youngs modulus,

## STRESS - STRAIN DIAGRAM

Elastic limit refers to the stress beyond which the material will not return to its original when the load is removed. The permanent deformation caused by excessive stress is called permanent set.

Yield point refers to the point where is an appreciable elongation or yielding of the material even without any corresponding increase in load.
Ultimate stress (or ultimate strength) refers to the highest ordinate in the stress-strain diagram. Rapture strength is sometimes known as the stress at failure.

Working stress is the actual stress of the material when loaded. Allowable stress is the maximum safe stress which the material can carry. Factor of safety is the ratio of the ultimate stress to allowable stress. Shearing strain is the angular change between two perpendicular faces of a differential element. Modulus of rigidity (G) refers to the modulus of elasticity in shear.

## STRESSES IN THIN WALLED CYLINDERS AND SPHERES

Where: p = pressure D = inside diameter. t = thickness Another term for tangential stress is circumferential stress, or hoop stress or girth stress.

Note that the longitudunal stress is one-half the value of the tangential stress.

TORSION
Torsion refers to the twisting of solid or hollow circular shafts.

A. Shearing stress where: T = torque applied Tp = radial distance from the center of cross-section J J = polar moment of inertia of the cross-section

HELICAL SPRINGS
Where: P = axial load R = mean radius of helical spring
