Suitability of a structure or machine may depend on the deformations in
analyses alone are not sufficient.

Considering structures as deformable allows determination of member
forces and reactions which are statically indeterminate.

Determination of the stress distribution within a member also requires
consideration of deformations in the member.

Chapter 2 is concerned with deformation of a structural member under

Elastic vs. Plastic Behavior

If the strain disappears when the
stress is removed, the material is
said to behave elastically.

When the strain does not return
to zero after the stress is
removed, the material is said to
behave plastically.

The largest stress for which this
occurs is called the elastic limit.

Fatigue

Fatigue properties are shown on

When the stress is reduced below
the endurance limit, fatigue
failures do not occur for any
number of cycles.

A member may fail due to fatigue
at stress levels significantly

Static Indeterminacy

Structures for which internal forces and reactions
cannot be determined from statics alone are said
to be statically indeterminate.
0 · + ·
R L
δ δ δ

Deformations due to actual loads and redundant
reactions are determined separately and then added
or superposed.

Redundant reactions are replaced with
unknown loads which along with the other

A structure will be statically indeterminate
whenever it is held by more supports than are
required to maintain its equilibrium.

Solve for the reaction at A due to applied loads
and the reaction found at B.

Require that the displacements due to the loads
and due to the redundant reaction be
compatible, i.e., require that their sum be zero.

Solve for the displacement at B due to the
redundant reaction at B.

the bar from that support, and solve for the

moves through 0.04 in. under the action
of the force, determine a) the average

Components of normal and shear strain are
related,

If the cubic element is oriented as in the
bottom figure, it will deform into a
rhombus. Axial load also results in a shear
strain.

An initially cubic element oriented as in
top figure will deform into a rectangular
parallelepiped. The axial load produces a

Elastoplastic Materials

Previous analyses based on assumption of
linear stress-strain relationship, i.e.,
stresses below the yield stress

Assumption is good for brittle material
which rupture without yielding

If the yield stress of ductile materials is
exceeded, then plastic deformations occur

Analysis of plastic deformations is
simplified by assuming an idealized
elastoplastic material

Deformations of an elastoplastic material
are divided into elastic and plastic ranges

Residual Stresses

When a single structural element is loaded uniformly
beyond its yield stress and then unloaded, it is
permanently deformed but all stresses disappear. This is
not the general result.

Residual stresses also result from the uneven heating or
cooling of structures or structural elements

Residual stresses will remain in a structure after
-
only part of the structure undergoes plastic
deformation
-
different parts of the structure undergo different
plastic deformations

MECHANICS OF MATERIALS

Third Edition

Beer • Johnston • DeWolf

• Suitability of a structure or machine may depend on the deformations in the structure as well as the stresses induced under loading. Statics analyses alone are not sufficient. • Considering structures as deformable allows determination of member forces and reactions which are statically indeterminate. • Determination of the stress distribution within a member also requires consideration of deformations in the member. • Chapter 2 is concerned with deformation of a structural member under axial loading. Later chapters will deal with torsional and pure bending loads.
