1 Mechanical Properties of Metals

2 Mechanical Properties Stiffness - Elastic Modulus or Youngs Modulus (MPa) Strength - Yield, Ultimate, Fracture, Proof, Offset Yield. Measured as stress (MPa) Ductility - Measure of ability to deform plastically without fracture - Elongation, Area Reduction, Fracture Strain - (no units or mm/mm) Toughness, Resilience - Measure of ability to absorb energy (J/m 3 ). Hardness - Resistance to indentation/abrasion (Various scales, e.g.; Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers.)

3 Stress and Strain In a simplistic sense, stress may be thought of as Load/Area. Similarly, strain is the deformation of the component/original length. A stress may be direct, shear, or torsional - leading to corresponding deformations. Stress cannot be measured directly, but deformation can be.

10 Dukes Quick Tip! Express Load in Newtons (N) and Area in mm 2 to get Stress in MPa. Mechanical properties of metals are almost always given in MPa or ksi. Imperial units: Load in kips (1000 lbf) & Area as in 2 gives Stress in ksi (kips/in 2 ) 1000 psi = 1 ksi = 6.89 MPa

11 Hookes Law Elastic Deformation Elastic deformation is not permanent; it means that when the load is removed, the part returns to its original shape and dimensions. For most metals, the elastic region is linear. For some materials, including metals such as cast iron, polymers, and concrete, the elastic region is non-linear. If the behavior is linear elastic, or nearly linear-elastic, Hookes Law may be applied: Where E is the modulus of elasticity (MPa)

12 Modulus of Elasticity - Stiffness

13 Atomic Origin of Stiffness

14 Shear Stress and Strain shear stress, = Shear Load / Area shear strain, = angle of deformation (radians) shear modulus, G = / (elastic region) Shear Stress Shear Strain

15 Elastic Properties of Materials Poissons ratio: When a metal is strained in one direction, there are corresponding strains in all other directions. For a uniaxial tension strain, the lateral strains are constrictive. Conversely, for a uniaxial compressive strain, the lateral strains are expansive. i.e.; the lateral strains are opposite in sign to the axial strain. The ratio of lateral to axial strains is known as Poissons ratio,.

23 Toughness & Resilience Toughness: A measure of the ability of a material to absorb energy without fracture. (J/m 3 or N.mm/mm 3 = MPa) Resilience: A measure of the ability of a material to absorb energy without plastic or permanent deformation. (J/m 3 or N.mm/mm 3 = MPa) Note: Both are determined as energy/unit volume
