Fixed end Wind Deflection of a Cantilever Beam Fixed end Support F = force L = length Y = deflection = FL3 / 3EI The larger the area moment of inertia, the less a structure deflects (greater stiffness) Mathematically, the area moment of inertia appears in the denominator of the deflection equation, therefore; Ken Youssefi Engineering 10, SJSU

22
**Concept of Area Moment of Inertia**

The Area Moment of Inertia is an important parameter in determine the state of stress in a part (component, structure), the resistance to buckling, and the amount of deflection in a beam. The area moment of inertia allows you to tell how stiff a structure is. The Area Moment of Inertia, I, is a term used to describe the capacity of a cross-section (profile) to resist bending. It is always considered with respect to a reference axis, in the X or Y direction. It is a mathematical property of a section concerned with a surface area and how that area is distributed about the reference axis. The reference axis is usually a centroidal axis. Ken Youssefi Engineering 10, SJSU

Ixx = ∑ (Ai) (yi)2 = A1(y1)2 + A2(y2)2 + …..An(yn)2 A (total area) = A1 + A2 + ……..An Area, A A2 A1 y2 y1 X X Ken Youssefi Engineering 10, SJSU

**Show of Hands Solid section Hollow section I don’t know**

2.0 inch 1.0 inch A designer is considering two cross sections as shown. Which will produce a stiffer structure? Solid section Hollow section I don’t know hollow rectangular section 2.25” wide X 1.25” high X .125” thick H B h b B = 2.25”, H = 1.25” b = 2.0”, h = 1.0” Ken Youssefi Engineering 10, SJSU

27
**Example – Optimization for Weight & Stiffness**

Consider a solid rectangular section 2.0 inch wide by 1.0 high. 1.0 I = (1/12)bh3 = (1/12)(2)(1)3 = , Area = 2 2.0 Now, consider a hollow rectangular section 2.25 inch wide by 1.25 high by .125 thick. H B h b B = 2.25, H = 1.25 b = 2.0, h = 1.0 I = (1/12)bh3 = (1/12)(2.25)(1.25)3 – (1/12)(2)(1)3= = .1995 Area = 2.25x1.25 – 2x1 = .8125 ( )/(.1667) x 100= .20 = 20% less deflection ( )/(2) = .6 = 60% lighter Compare the weight of the two parts (same material and length), so only the cross sectional areas need to be compared. So, for a slightly larger outside dimension section, 2.25x1.25 instead of 2 x 1, you can design a beam that is 20% stiffer and 60 % lighter Ken Youssefi Engineering 10, SJSU

**Material and Stiffness**

E = Elasticity Module, a measure of material deformation under a load. Deflection of a Cantilever Beam Fixed end Support F = force L = length Y = deflection = FL3 / 3EI The higher the value of E, the less a structure deflects (higher stiffness) Ken Youssefi Engineering 10, SJSU

**Material Strength Standard Tensile Test σ (stress) = Load / Area**

Ductile Steel (low carbon) Sy – yield strength Su – fracture strength Standard Specimen σ (stress) = Load / Area ε (strain) = (change in length) / (original length) Ken Youssefi Engineering 10 - SJSU

32
**Common Mechanical Properties**

– the highest stress a material can withstand and still return exactly to its original size when unloaded. Yield Strength (Sy) - the greatest stress a material can withstand, fracture stress. Ultimate Strength (Su) - the slope of the straight portion of the stress-strain curve. Modulus of elasticity (E) - the extent of plastic deformation that a material undergoes before fracture, measured as a percent elongation of a material. % elongation = (final length, at fracture – original length) / original length Ductility - the capacity of a material to absorb energy within the elastic zone (area under the stress-strain curve in the elastic zone) Resilience - the total capacity of a material to absorb energy without fracture (total area under the stress-strain curve) Toughness Ken Youssefi Engineering 10 - SJSU
