Stress and strain
We are now concerned with deformable bodies. If a bar of
material is subjected to an axial force its length will change by
a small amount. The amount of change in length will depend on
the material. Let bar cross section area be A.

Failure
A ductile material is one that, when subjected to a tensile
force fails only after it has increased in length by a relatively
large amount. (Say 20-30%). Steel is ductile. Necking occurs and
a cup and cone failure occurs.
A brittle material is one that, when subjected to a tensile force
fails suddenly after only a very small increase in length. Stone
and cast iron and stone are brittle.
A material can fail in compression, the material crumbles apart.
A column of material can also buckle - another failure mode.
Elastic relationship
In the elastic range direct strain is proportional to direct
stress. Thus σ/ε is a constant. This constant is E.

E= E is the modulus of elasticity or
ε Young’s modulus. Units are Pa.

Factor of safety
The ratio between the ultimate tensile stress (UTS) and
the actual stress is the factor of safety.

## A cylinder cover plate is attached by 8, mild steel, 12 mm dia

bolts. The cylinder is 250 mm. If the UTS of the steel is 320 MPa ,
and a factor of safety of 3 is required, what is the maximum
pressure allowed in the cylinder?
Bolt CSA = 8 x (π122/4) = 905 mm2.
Max allowed force in bolts = (320 MPa/3) x 905 mm2 = 96533 N.
Force = pressure x area of cylinder. A = 0.252 π /4 = 0.049 m2.
P = F/A = 96533/0.049 = 1.97 MPa

Lateral strain

## Under a tensile load a bar stretches axially but it also contracts

laterally. The ration between the lateral and axial strain is
Poisson’s ratio. Thus εL = –υ x εA. Poisson’s ratio is a positive
quantity. For most materials υ is in the region 0.25 to 0.35.
Rubber has a value close to 0.5 and cork has a value close to 0.

F F
Shear stress and strain
Shear takes place in the same
plane as the force. Thus the
pin will shear in planes AB F F
and CD.
In this example shear force in
plane AB and in plane CD is
F/2. The area under shear in
plane is πd2/4. The shear stress A B
is the shear force/area over which C D
it acts. Thus
τ = FS AS
d
Shear stress and strain
The shear stress is the shear force/area over which it acts. Thus
τ = FS AS τ is the shear stress (N/m2).
x
The angle φ (in radians) FS
φ=x L
is the shear strain.

G=τ φ G is the shear modulus,

It can be shown that G =

G, E and υ are properties of the material.
EXAMPLE 1
In the system show the pin
has a diameter of 10 mm and
the maximum allowable shear F F
stress is 50 MPa. What is the
maximum force that can be applied to the joint?
Area of one shear plane is

FS = τ max As = 50 ×10 2 × 7.854 ×10 −5 m 2

FS = 3927 N ∴Max force = 2 FS = 7854 N
EXAMPLE 2
An engine mounted is modelled as a rubber pad, 50 mm by
50 mm and 20 mm thick. Each pad is subjected a shear force
of 500 N. Determine the deflection of the pad due to shear
if (for this rubber) υ = 0.47 and E = 2.94 MPa.

## G = 2.94 MPa/[2(1+0.47)] = 1 MPa.

τ = FS/AS = 500 N/0.0502 m2 = 200,000 N/m2 = 0.2 MPa.
G = τ/φ so that φ = τ/G = 0.2/1 = 0.2.
Since φ = x/L, x = φL = 0.2 x 20 mm = 4 mm.
Beams are important structural members, usually supporting
transverse loads. Such members are found in bridges, roof
trusses and cranes. Beams are usually horizontal, loads vertical

Types of beam

## Simply supported of pin-pinned

or prop-propped
Cantilever or clamped-free

Clamped-supported, clamped-
pinned or clamp-propped.

Built-in or clamp-clamped
Beam boundaries

## Clamped support. No rotation, no

deflection. Reaction force and fixing
moment act.

## Simple support. Rotation but no

deflection. Reaction force acts.

## Free end. Rotation and deflection can

take place. No reaction force or fixing
moment.
Beam equilibrium
When a beam is loaded it will tend to bend. To analyse this we
need to know the internal forces and moments that respond to
the applied forces etc.
If the beam is stationary it must be in equilibrium and also each
part must be in equilibrium. E.g.
F
P1 P2 P1 M M P2

F
F is the shear force, M is the bending moment.
Sign convention
Positive shear force
Positive bending
moment - sagging

## Negative shear force Negative bending

moment - hogging
Shear force diagrams
The force (SF) at any point along the beam is the algebraic sum
of all the normal forces acting on either side of a point on the beam.

## E.g. To find reactions, acw MA = 10RD – 2 x 7 – 6 x 6 = 0

RD = (14 + 36)/10 = 5 kN. F = RA – 7 – 6 + 5 = 0. RA = 8 kN

Shear Stress due to
Torsion
The following analysis is restricted to circular shafts.
Shear strain due to torsion is φ = x/L. Since
θ = x/r then φL = θr. Thus φ = θr/L.
φ = τ/G. Thus τ/G = θr/L. Rearranging τ/r = Gθ/L τ

x
θ
r
r
L
Shear strain and stress are directly proportional to the distance
r from the axis of the shaft.
Shear Stress due to
Torsion
Consider an element in the circular shaft
with area = δA. Moment or torque applied
to element is the product of shear stress,
δA
area of element and distance from axis of
rotation. Thus
δΤ = τ x (δA) x r r
Τ = Σ δΤ = Σ(τ x rδA)
Since τ/r = Gθ/L, τ = rGθ/L. Thus
Τ = Σ δΤ = Σ(Gθr2δA)/L
For a circular shaft
Let J = Σ(r2δA) - the polar 2nd moment
J = πD4/32
area. Thus Τ = GθJ/L or Τ/J = Gθ/L
Shear stress due to
torsion - Summary
When a circular shaft of length L is subjected to an applied
torque Τ it will twist by an angle θ. Then
Τ Gθ τ
= =
J L r
Where τ is the shear stress at a radius r, J is the polar 2nd moment
of area of the shaft and G is the shear modulus.
EXAMPLE 1
A hollow circular shaft has an o/d of 40 mm and an i/d 30 mm.
If the max allowable shear stress is 40 MPa, determine the max
allowable torque.

## J = πD4/32 – πd4/32 = (π/32)(0.044 – 0.034) = 1.718 x 10–7 m4.

Τ/J = τ/r. Thus Τ = Jτ/r = 1.718 x 10–7 x 40 x 106/0.04 Nm
Τ = 171.8 Nm
EXAMPLE 2
A circular shaft is required to transmit 40 kW at 2 rev/s. The shear
stress is limited to 50 MN/m2 and the twist must not exceed
0.5º/m. G = 77 GN/m2. Calculate the diameter of the shaft.
Since power = Τω (see later), Τ = 40000/(2π x 2) = 3183 Nm.
Τ/J = Gθ/L = τ/r
Τ/τ = J/r. Thus J/r = 3183/50 x 106 = 5.895 x 10–6 m3.
(πD4/32)/(D/2) = πD3/16 = 6.366 x 10–5 m3.
D = 0.0687 m or 68.7 mm.
θ = 0.5 x π/180 = 0.00873.
Τ/J = Gθ/L. Thus J = ΤL/Gθ=3183/(77x109x0.00873)=4.735x10–6
πD4/32 = 4.735x10–6 m4, D = 0.0833 m or 83.3 mm. (Required dia).
