MECHANICS OF MATERIALS

## 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.

Hookes Law: Modulus of Elasticity

## = E E = Youngs Modulus or Modulus of Elasticity

Strength is affected by alloying, heat treating, and manufacturing process but stiffness (Modulus of Elasticity) is not.

MECHANICS OF MATERIALS
Elastic vs. Plastic Behavior

## Beer Johnston DeWolf

If the strain disappears when the stress is removed, the material is said to behave elastically. The largest stress for which this occurs is called the elastic limit. When the strain does not return to zero after the stress is removed, the material is said to behave plastically.

P = E AE

From the definition of strain: = L Equating and solving for the deformation, PL = AE With variations in loading, cross-section or material properties, PL = i i i Ai Ei

Example

## Beer Johnston DeWolf

SOLUTION: Divide the rod into components at the load application points. Apply a free-body analysis on each component to determine the internal force. Determine the deformation of the steel rod shown under the given loads. Evaluate the total of the component deflections.

Poissons Ratio

## Beer Johnston DeWolf

For a slender bar subjected to axial loading: x = x y = z = 0 E The elongation in the x-direction is accompanied by a contraction in the other directions. Assuming that the material is isotropic (no directional dependence),

y = z 0
Poissons ratio is defined as y lateral strain = = = z axial strain x x

Poissons Ratio

## Beer Johnston DeWolf

Poissons ratio, v (nu), states that in the elastic range, the ratio of these strains is a constant since the deformations are proportional. v = lat long

## Poissons ratio is dimensionless. Typical values are 1/3 or 1/4.

Negative sign since longitudinal elongation (positive strain) causes lateral contraction (negative strain), and vice versa.

## Beer Johnston DeWolf

For most engineering materials the elastic behaviour is linear, so Hookes Law for shear applies.

G= E 2(1 + v )
