A cylindrical rod 120 mmlong and having a diameter of 15.0 mmis to be

This problem asks that we assess the four alloys relative to the two criteria
presented. The first criterion is that the material not experience plastic
deformation when the tensile load of 35,000 N is applied; this means that the
stress corresponding to this load not exceed the yield strength of the material.

Relative to the second criterion, it is necessary to calculate the change in diameter

Now, solving for ∆d from this expression,
For the aluminum alloy
Therefore, the Al alloy is not a candidate.
For the steel alloy
Therefore, steel is a candidate.
For the Ti alloy
Hence, the titanium alloy is also a candidate.

This problem calls for us to make a stressstrain plot for aluminum, given its tensile
loadlength data, and then to determine some of its mechanical characteristics.
(a) The data are plotted below on two plots: the first corresponds to the entire
stressstrain curve, while for the second, the curve extends just beyond the elastic
region of deformation.

(b) The elastic modulus is the slope in the linear elastic region:

(c) For the yield strength, the 0.002 strain offset line is drawn dashed. It
intersects the stressstrain curve at approximately 285 MPa (41,000 psi ).
(d) The tensile strength is approximately 370 MPa (53,500 psi), corresponding
to the maximum stress on the complete stressstrain plot.
(e) The ductility, in percent elongation, is just the plastic strain at fracture,
multiplied by onehundred. The total fracture strain at fracture is 0.165;
subtracting out the elastic strain (which is about 0.005) leaves a plastic
strain of 0.160. Thus, the ductility is about 16%EL.
