 Normal Stress
 Shear Stress
 Bearing Stress
 Allowable Stress
 Deformation of Structural under Axial Load
 Statically indeterminate problem
 Thermal Stress
 Mechanics of material is a study of the
relationship between the external loads applied
to a deformable body and the intensity of
internal forces acting within the body.

##  Stress = the intensity of the internal force on a

specific plane (area) passing through a point.

##  Strain = describe the deformation by changes in

length of line segments and the changes in the
angles between them
• Normal Stress : stress which acts perpendicular, or normal to, the
(σ) cross section of the load-carrying member.
: can be either compressive or tensile.
• Shear Stress : stress which acts tangent to the cross section of
(τ) the load-carrying member.
: refers to a cutting-like action.

1.1 Introduction 8
 Normal Stress, 
the intensity of force, or force per unit area, acting
normal to A
 = P / A

## A positive sign will be used to indicate a tensile stress

(member in tension)

## A negative sign will be used to indicate a compressive

stress (member in compression)

Stress-Strain Diagrams

## A number of important mechanical

properties of materials that can be deduced
from the stress-strain diagram are illustrated
in figure above.

30
 Point O-A = linear relationship between stress
and strain
 Point A = proportional limit (PL)
The ratio of stress to strain in this linear region
of stress-strain diagram is called Young Modulus
or the Modulus of Elasticity given

 
  < PL
At point A-B, specimen begins yielding. Unit: MPa
 Point B = yield point
 Point B-C = specimen continues to elongate without any increase in
stress. Its refer as perfectly plastic zone
 Point C = stress begins to increase
 Point C-D = refer as the zone of strain hardening
 Point D = ultimate stress/strength ; specimen
begins to neck-down
 Point E = fracture stress

Point O to A

Point C to D

Point D to E

## Normal or engineering stress can be determined

by dividing the applied load by the specimen
original cross sectional area.
True stress is calculated using the actual cross
sectional area at the instant the load is
measured.

31
Some of the materials like aluminum (ductile),
does not have clear yield point likes
structural steel. Therefore, stress value
called the offset yield stress, YL is used
in line of a yield point stress.

## As illustrated, the offset yield stress is

determine by;
 Drawing a straight line that best fits the data in initial (linear)
portion of the stress-strain diagram
 Second line is then drawn parallel to the original line but offset
by specified amount of strain
 The intersection of this second line with
the stress-strain curve determine the
offset yield stress.
 Commonly used offset value is 0.002/0.2%

32
Brittle material such as ceramic and glass
have low tensile stress value but high in
compressive stress. Stress-strain diagram for
brittle material.

Example 1.6
The 4 mm diameter cable BC is made of a steel
with E=200GPa. Knowing that the maximum
stress in the cable must not exceed 190MPa
and that the elongation of the cable must not
exceed 6mm, find the maximum load P that can
be applied as shown

33
 Elasticity refers to the property of a material such that
it returns to its original dimensions after unloading .
 Any material which deforms when subjected to load
and returns to its original dimensions when unloaded
is said to be elastic.
 If the stress is proportional to the strain, the material
is said to be linear elastic, otherwise it is non-linear
elastic.
 Beyond the elastic limit, some residual strain or
permanent strains will remain in the material upon
 The residual elongation corresponding to the
permanent strain is called the permanent set .

34
• The amount of strain which is recovered upon unloading is
called the elastic recovery.

35
 When an elastic, homogenous and isotropic material
is subjected to uniform tension, it stretches axially
but contracts laterally along its entire length.
 Similarly, if the material is subjected to axial
compression, it shortens axially but bulges out
laterally (sideways).
 The ratio of lateral strain to axial strain is a constant
known as the Poisson's ratio,

3. A standard tension test is used to determine the
properties of an experimental plastic. The test
specimen is a 15 mm diameter rod and it is
subjected to a 3.5 kN tensile force. Knowing that an
elongation of 11 mm and a decrease in diameter of
0.62 mm are observed in a 120 mm gage length.
Determine the modulus of elasticy, the modulus of
rigidity, and Poisson’s ratio of the material.

A force acting parallel or tangential to a section taken
through a material (i.e. in the plane of the material) is called a
shear force
The shear force intensity, i.e. shear force divided by the area
over which it acts, is called the average shear stress, 
 = shear stress
  V
V = shear force
A
A = cross-sectional area
 Shear stress arises as a result of the direct action of forces
trying to cut through a material, it is known as direct shear
force

## Shear stresses can also arise indirectly as a result of tension,

torsion or bending of a member.

Modulus of Rigidity.
 Value of shear modulus can be obtained from the linear

 Because of the change in the dimensions of a body as
a result of tension or compression, the volume of the
body also changes within the elastic limit.
 Consider a rectangular parallel piped having sides a,
b and c in the x, y and z directions, respectively.

58
 The tensile force P causes an axial elongation of a
and lateral contractions of b and c in the x, y, and
z directions respectively. Hence,

Initial

## Initial volume of body, Vo = abc

Final volume, Vf = (a + a)(b - b)(c - c)
= abc(1 + )(1 - )2

59
Expanding and neglecting higher orders of  (since  is
very small),

## Final volume, Vf = abc(1 +  - 2)

Change in volume,
V = Final Volume - Initial Volume
= abc(1 +  - 2 ) - abc
= abc(1 +  - 2  - 1)
= abc( - 2 )
= Vo (1 - 2 )

 If a bar is fixed at both ends, as shown in

• In this case, the bar is called statically

the reactions.
• the relative displacement of one end of the bar
with respect to the other end is equal to zero
since the ends supports are fixed. Hence; A / B 0

 A change in temperature can cause material to change its
dimensions.
 If the temperature increases, generally a material expands,
whereas if the temperature decreases, the material will
contract.
 If this is the case, and the material is homogenous and
isotropic, it has been found from experiment that the
deformation of a member having a length L can be calculated
using the formula;
T=TL
Where
=linear coefficient of thermal expansion (unit:
1/C)
T=change in temperature
L=original length of the member

## The negative value for F steel indicates that the

force acts opposite to arrow shown.
THE STEEL POSTS ARE IN TENSION and
ALUMINIUM POSTS IS IN COMPRESSION
TUTORIAL 1
Determine the reactions at A and B for the steel bar
and loading shown, assuming a close fit at both
supports before the loads are applied.

## Answer, RA= 323 kN, Rb= 577kN

TUTORIAL 2
Two cylindrical rods, CD made of steel (E=200 GPa) and
AC made of aluminum (E=72 GPa), are joined at C and
restrained by rigid supports at A and D. Determine
(a) the reactions at A and D (RA=52.9kN, RD= 87.1 kN)
(b) The deflection of point C (0.086 mm)

TUTORIAL 3
At room temperature (21oC) a 0.5 mm gap exists
between the ends of the rods shown. At a later time when
the temperature has reached 1600C, determine
(a)The normal stress in the aluminum rod (σa =-150.6
MPa)
(b)The change in length of the aluminum rod (δa= 0.369
mm)
