CHAPTER 6 MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF METALS PROBLEM SOLUTIONS

Concepts of Stress and Strain
6.1 Using mechanics of materials principles (i.e., equations of mechanical equilibrium applied to a freebody diagram), derive Equations 6.4a and 6.4b. Solution This problem asks that we derive Equations 6.4a and 6.4b, using mechanics of materials principles. In Figure (a) below is shown a block element of material of cross-sectional area A that is subjected to a tensile force P. Also represented is a plane that is oriented at an angle θ referenced to the plane perpendicular to the tensile axis; the area of this plane is A' = A/cos θ. In addition, and the forces normal and parallel to this plane are labeled as P' and V', respectively. Furthermore, on the left-hand side of this block element are shown force components that are tangential and perpendicular to the inclined plane. In Figure (b) are shown the orientations of the applied stress σ, the normal stress to this plane σ', as well as the shear stress τ' taken parallel to this inclined plane. In addition, two coordinate axis systems in represented in Figure (c): the primed x and y axes are referenced to the inclined plane, whereas the unprimed x axis is taken parallel to the applied stress.

Normal and shear stresses are defined by Equations 6.1 and 6.3, respectively. However, we now chose to express these stresses in terms (i.e., general terms) of normal and shear forces (P and V) as

For static equilibrium in the x' direction the following condition must be met:

6.2 (a) Equations 6.4a and 6.4b are expressions for normal (σ′) and shear (τ′) stresses, respectively, as a function of the applied tensile stress (σ) and the inclination angle of the plane on which these stresses are taken (θ of Figure 6.4). Make a plot on which is presented the orientation parameters of these expressions (i.e., cos 2 θ and sin θ cos θ) versus θ. (b) From this plot, at what angle of inclination is the normal stress a maximum? (c) Also, at what inclination angle is the shear stress a maximum? Solution (a) Below are plotted curves of cos2θ (for

σ' ) and sin θ

cos θ (for τ') versus θ.

(b) The maximum normal stress occurs at an inclination angle of 0°. (c) The maximum shear stress occurs at an inclination angle of 45°.

Tensile Properties
6.25 Figure 6.21 shows the tensile engineering stress–strain behavior for a steel alloy. (a) What is the modulus of elasticity? (b) What is the proportional limit? (c) What is the yield strength at a strain offset of 0.002? (d) What is the tensile strength? Solution Using the stress-strain plot for a steel alloy (Figure 6.21), we are asked to determine several of its mechanical characteristics. (a) The elastic modulus is just the slope of the initial linear portion of the curve; or, from the inset and using Equation 6.10

The value given in Table 6.1 is 207 GPa. (b) The proportional limit is the stress level at which linearity of the stress-strain curve ends, which is approximately 300 MPa (43,500 psi). (c) The 0.002 strain offset line intersects the stress-strain curve at approximately 400 MPa (58,000 psi). (d) The tensile strength (the maximum on the curve) is approximately 515 MPa (74,700 psi).

6.26 A cylindrical specimen of a brass alloy having a length of 60 mm (2.36 in.) must elongate only 10.8 mm (0.425 in.) when a tensile load of 50,000 N (11,240 lbf) is applied. Under these circumstances, what must be the radius of the specimen? Consider this brass alloy to have the stress-strain behavior shown in Figure 6.12. Solution We are asked to calculate the radius of a cylindrical brass specimen in order to produce an elongation of 10.8 mm when a load of 50,000 N is applied. It first becomes necessary to compute the strain corresponding to this elongation using Equation 6.2 as

ε =

Dl 10.8 mm = = 0.18 l0 60 mm

From Figure 6.12, a stress of 420 MPa (61,000 psi) corresponds to this strain. Since for a cylindrical specimen, stress, force, and initial radius r0 are related as

6.27 A load of 85,000 N (19,100 lbf) is applied to a cylindrical specimen of a steel alloy (displaying the stress–strain behavior shown in Figure 6.21) that has a cross-sectional diameter of 15 mm (0.59 in.). (a) Will the specimen experience elastic and/or plastic deformation? Why? (b) If the original specimen length is 250 mm (10 in.), how much will it increase in length when this load is applied? Solution This problem asks us to determine the deformation characteristics of a steel specimen, the stress-strain behavior for which is shown in Figure 6.21. (a) In order to ascertain whether the deformation is elastic or plastic, we must first compute the stress, then locate it on the stress-strain curve, and, finally, note whether this point is on the elastic or plastic region. Thus, from Equation 6.1

σ =

The 481 MPa point is beyond the linear portion of the curve, and, therefore, the deformation will be both elastic and plastic. (b) This portion of the problem asks us to compute the increase in specimen length. From the stressstrain curve, the strain at 481 MPa is approximately 0.0135. Thus, from Equation 6.2

∆λ = e l0 = (0.0135)(250 mm) = 3.4 mm (0.135 in.)
