Saint Venants Principle p
The difference between the effects of two different but statically equivalent
loads becomes very small at suffiently large distances fromthe load loads becomes very small at suffiently large distances from the load.
1. Most analysis in mechanics of materials is based on simplifications that can
be justified with Saint Venants principle.
2. We often replace loads (including support reactions) by their resultants
and ignore the effects of holes, grooves, and fillets on stresses and
deformations.
3. Many of the simplifications are not only justified but necessary.
4. Without simplifying assumptions, analysis would be exceedingly difficult.
5. However, we must always keep in mind the approximations that were
d d k ll f h i h fi l d i made, and make allowances for them in the final design.

1. Maximum normal stress is P/A, and it acts on the cross
section of the bar (that is on the plane = 0) section of the bar (that is, on the plane = 0).
2. The shear stress is zero when = 0, as would be expected.

In summary, an axial load causes not only normal stress but also

orientation of the plane on which they act.

Procedure for Stress Analysis
I l th t l i f i ll l d d b f t t In general, the stress analysis of an axially loaded member of a structure
involves the following steps.
1. EquilibriumAnalysis
If necessary, find the external reactions using a freebody diagram
(FBD) of the entire structure.
Compute the axial force P in the member using the method of sections.
This method introduces an imaginary cutting plane that isolates a
segment of the structure.
The cutting plane must include the cross section of the member of
interest.
The axial force acting in the member can then be found from the FBD of
the isolated segment because it now appears as an external force on the the isolated segment because it now appears as an external force on the
FBD.
14062014 15 StrengthofMaterials I(Introduction)
1. Computation of Stress
1. After the axial force has been found by equilibrium analysis, the y q y ,
average normal stress in the member can be obtained from s=P/A,
where A is the crosssectional area of the member at the cutting where A is the cross sectional area of the member at the cutting
plane.
2 In slender bars s=P/A is the normal stress if the section is sufficiently 2. In slender bars, s=P/A is the normal stress if the section is sufficiently
far from applied loads and abrupt changes in the cross section (Saint
V i i l ) Venants principle).
14062014 16 StrengthofMaterials I(Introduction)
Design Considerations
For purposes of design, the computed stress
1. must be compared with the allowable stress, also called the working stress.
2. The working stress, which we denote by
w
, is discussed in detail in the next
chapter.
3. To prevent failure of the member, the computed stress must be less than the
working stress.
4 N h A l i f T Th l i d i h l i f 4. Note on the Analysis of Trusses The usual assumptions made in the analysis of
trusses are: (1) weights of the members are negligible compared to the applied
loads (2) joints beha e as smooth pins and (3) all loads are applied at the joints loads; (2) joints behave as smooth pins; and (3) all loads are applied at the joints.
Under these assumptions, each member of the truss is an axially loaded bar.
5 The internal forces in the bars can be obtained by the method of sections or the 5. The internal forces in the bars can be obtained by the method of sections or the
method of joints (utilizing the freebody diagrams of the joints).

Observe that the lengths of the segments do not affect the calculations of the
stresses. Also, the fact that the bar is made of steel is irrelevant; the stresses in
the segments would be as calculated, regardless of the materials from which
the segments of the bar are fabricated.
