Normal and shear stresses on inclined sections
To obtain a complete picture of the stresses in a bar, we must consider the stresses acting on an “inclined” (as opposed to a “normal”) section through the bar.

Because the stresses are the same throughout the entire bar, the stresses on the sections are uniformly distributed.

We are really just rotating axes to represent stresses in a new coordinate system.Stress Elements and Plane Stress When working with stress elements. y1 y x1 σx θ σx x 8 . regardless of the orientation of the element used to portray the state of stress. keep in mind that only one intrinsic state of stress exists at a point in a stressed body.

Such an element could be located on the free surface of a body (no stresses acting on the free surface). only the x and y faces are subjected to stresses (σz = 0 and τzx = τxz = τzy = τyz = 0).

Why? A material may yield or fail at the maximum value of σ or τ. We want to find the stresses in terms of the rotated coordinate system x1y1. (Remember that for uniaxial tension the maximum shear stress occurred when θ = 45 degrees.

Inclined face has area A sec θ. Bottom face has area A tan θ. Left face has area A. Force components can then be summed.Transformation Equations Stresses y y1 θ Forces y y1 x1 σx1 θ x σxA τxy A τyx A tan θ τx1y1 σx τxy θ τx1y1 A sec θ σx1 A sec θ x1 θ x τyx σy σy A tan θ Forces can be found from stresses if the area on which the stresses act is known. 12 .

To find the principal stresses. There are two values of θp in the range 0-180°. So. the planes on which the principal stresses act are mutually perpendicular. with values differing by 90°.

This tells us which principal stress is associated with which principal angle.We can now solve for the principal stresses by substituting for θp in the stress transformation equation for σx1. 2τ xy tan 2θ p = σ x −σ y σ x1 = σ x +σ y 2 + σ x −σ y 2 cos 2θ + τ xy sin 2θ R R2 = ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛σ x −σ y ⎞ 2 2 ⎟ + τ xy 2 ⎟ ⎠ τxy cos 2θ p = sin 2θ p = σ x −σ y τ xy R 2R 2θp (σx – σy) / 2 σ1 = σx +σ y 2 + σ x −σ y ⎛σ x −σ y ⎞ 2 ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ 2R ⎛ τ xy ⎞ ⎟ + τ xy ⎜ ⎟ ⎟ ⎜ R ⎟ ⎠ ⎝ ⎠ 18 .

The planes on which the principal stresses act are called the principal planes. the shear stresses are zero on the principal planes. 20 . What shear stresses act on the principal planes? Compare the equations for τ x1 y1 = 0 and dσ x1 dθ = 0 τ x1 y1 = (σ − x −σ y ) 2 − (σ x − σ y ) sin 2θ + 2τ xy cos 2θ = 0 sin 2θ + τ xy cos 2θ = 0 dσ x1 = − (σ x − σ y ) sin 2θ + 2τ xy cos 2θ = 0 dθ Solving either equation gives the same expression for tan 2θp Hence.

The two principal stresses determined so far are the principal stresses in the xy plane. 24 . σ3 = 0 Usually we take σ1 > σ2 > σ3. so there are always three principal stresses. But … remember that the stress element is 3D. Since principal stresses can be compressive as well as tensile. σ3 could be a negative (compressive) stress. σ2. σy. τxy = τyx = τ σ1. yp y σy τ σx τ τ σx x σ2 σ1 xp σ1 σ3 = 0 σ2 τ σy zp σx. rather than the zero stress.

we must differentiate the transformation equation for shear. There are two values of θs in the range 0-180°. with values differing by 180°. the maximum positive and negative shear stresses differ only in sign. Because shear stresses on perpendicular planes have equal magnitudes. 25 .Maximum Shear Stress To find the maximum shear stress. with values differing by 90°.

What normal stresses act on the planes with maximum shear stress? Substitute for θs in the equations for σx1 and σy1 to get σ x1 = σ y1 = σy y σx +σ y 2 σs τmax =σs y τyx τxy x τmax σs θs σx τxy τyx σx x τmax σs σs σy τmax 27 .Use equations for sin θs and cos θs or τx1y1 to find out which face has the positive shear stress and which the negative.

we can ask how the principal stresses and maximum shear stresses are related and how the principal angles and maximum shear angles are related.Finally. σ 1. 2 = σx +σ y 2 ± ⎛σ x −σ y ⎜ ⎜ 2 ⎝ 2 ⎞ ⎟ + τ xy 2 ⎟ ⎠ 2 σ1 − σ 2 = 2 ⎛σ x −σ y ⎞ ⎜ ⎟ + τ xy 2 ⎜ 2 ⎟ ⎝ ⎠ σ 1 − σ 2 = 2τ max σ −σ2 τ max = 1 2 ⎛σ x −σ y ⎞ 2τ xy ⎟ tan 2θ s = − ⎜ tan 2θ p = ⎜ 2τ ⎟ σ x −σ y xy ⎝ ⎠ −1 tan 2θ s = = − cot 2θ p tan 2θ p 30 .
