EQUILIBRIUM OF A DEFORMABLE
BODY
Objective of free body diagram (FBD) is to determine the
resultant force and moment acting within a body.
In general, there are 4 different types of resultant
a) Normal force, N
b) Shear force, V
c) Torsional moment or torque, T
d) Bending moment, M
EQUILIBRIUM OF A DEFORMABLE
BODY
Equations of Equilibrium
Equilibrium of a body requires a balance
of forces and a balance of moments
F = 0 M O =0

## For a body with x, y, z coordinate system

with originO,
F = 0, F = 0, F = 0
x y z

M x = 0,My = 0,Mz = 0

## Best way to account for these forces is

to draw the bodys free-body diagram
(FBD).

We will consider the material to be

called stress.

Poissons ratio
POISSONS RATIO
When body subjected to axial tensile force, it
elongates and contracts laterally
Similarly, it will contract and its sides expand laterally
when subjected to an axial compressive force

POISSONS RATIO
Strains of the bar are:

Early 1800s, S.D. Poisson realized that within elastic range, ration of the two strains is a
constant value, since both are proportional.

## is unique for homogenous and isotropic material

Why negative sign? Longitudinal elongation cause lateral contraction (-ve strain) and vice versa
Lateral strain is the same in all lateral (radial) directions
Poissons ratio is dimensionless, 0 0.5

SUMMARY
Stress and strain: These are size-independent
measures of load and displacement, respectively.
Elastic behavior: This reversible behavior often
shows a linear relation between stress and strain.
To minimize deformation, select a material with a
large elastic modulus (E or G).
Plastic behavior: This permanent deformation
behavior occurs when the tensile (or compressive)
uniaxial stress reaches sy.
Toughness: The energy needed to break a unit
volume of material.
Ductility: The plastic strain at failure.

55
CHAPTER REVIEW
Tension test is the most important test for
determining material strengths. Results of normal
stress and normal strain can then be plotted.
Many engineering materials behave in a linear-
elastic manner, where stress is proportional to
strain, defined by Hookes law, = E. E is the
modulus of elasticity, and is measured from slope
of a stress-strain diagram
When material stressed beyond yield point,
permanent deformation will occur.

56
CHAPTER REVIEW
Strain hardening causes further yielding of
material with increasing stress
At ultimate stress, localized region on specimen
begin to constrict, and starts necking. Fracture
occurs.
Ductile materials exhibit both plastic and elastic
behavior. Ductility specified by permanent
elongation to failure or by the permanent
reduction in cross-sectional area
Brittle materials exhibit little or no yielding before
failure
57
Yield point for material can be increased by strain
hardening, by applying load great enough to cause
increase in stress causing yielding, then releasing
the load. The larger stress produced becomes the
new yield point for the material
Deformations of material under load causes strain
energy to be stored. Strain energy per unit
volume/strain energy density is equivalent to area
under stress-strain curve.

58
The area up to the yield point of stress-strain
diagram is referred to as the modulus of
resilience
The entire area under the stress-strain diagram is
referred to as the modulus of toughness
Poissons ratio (), a dimensionless property that
measures the lateral strain to the longitudinal
strain [0 0.5]
For shear stress vs. strain diagram: within elastic
region, = G, where G is the shearing modulus,
found from the slope of the line within elastic
region

59
G can also be obtained from the relationship of
G = E/[2(1+ )]
