Chap 11: Mechanical Properties
Objectives Introduction Tension Test Stress-Strain Mechanical Properties of Materials Compression Test Allowable Stresses and Factor of Safety Stress Concentration Elastic Design Versus Plastic Design

Allowable Axial Load Structural members are usually designed for a limited stress level called allowable stress, which is the max stress that the material can handle. Equation can be rewritten Required Area The required minimum cross-sectional area A that a structural member needs to support the allowable stress is from Equation 9-1 Eqn 9-3 Example 9-1 Example 9-2 Internal Axial Force Diagram Variation of internal axial force along the length of a member can be detected by this The ordinate at any section of a member is equal to the value of the internal axial force of that section Example 9-3 and 9-4 – Statics review

Strain Units % Elongation = strain x 100%
Strain: Physical change in the dimensions of a specimen that results from applying a load to the test specimen. Strain calculated by the ratio of the change in length, , and the original length, L. (Deformation) Where,  = linear strain ( is Greek for epsilon)  = total axial deformation (elongation of contraction) = Lfinal –Linitial = Lf - L L = Original length Strain units (Dimensionless) Units When units are given they usually are in/in or mm/mm. (Change in dimension divided by original length) % Elongation = strain x 100% L

Strain 10in 1 in 0.1 in Example Tensile Bar is 10in x 1in x 0.1in is mounted vertically in test machine. The bar supports 100 lbs. What is the strain that is developed if the bar grows to 10.2in? What is % Elongation?  =Strain = (Lf - L0)/L0 = ( )/(10) = 0.02 in/in Percent Elongation = 0.02 * 100 = 2% What is the strain if the bar grows to 10.5 inches? What is the percent elongation? 100 lbs

Stress-Strain Diagrams
Test Sample Forces Fixed Equipment Tensile Testing machine UTM- Universal testing machine Measures Load, pounds force or N Deflection, inches or mm Data is recorded at several readings Results are averaged e.g., 10 samples per second during the test. Calculates Stress, Normal stress or shear stress Strain, Linear strain Modulus, ratio of stress/strain

Modulus and Strength Modulus: Slope of the stress-strain curve
Can be Initial Modulus, Tangent Modulus or Secant Modulus Secant Modulus is most common Strength Yield Strength Stress that the material starts to yield Maximum allowable stress Proportional Limit Similar to yield strength and is the point where Hooke’s Law is valid If stress is higher than Hooke’s Law is not valid and can’t be used. Ultimate strength Maximum stress that a material can withstand Important for brittle materials Stress Strain Modulus Yield Strength Proportional Limit Ultimate Strength

Tensile Modulus and Yield Strength
Modulus of Elasticity (E) or Young’s Modulus is the ratio of stress to corresponding strain A measure of stiffness Yield Strength Measure of how much stress a material can withstand without breaking Modulus Yield Strength Stainless Steel E= 28.5 million psi (196.5 GPa) Aluminum E= 10 million psi Brass E= 16 million psi Copper E= 16 million psi Molybdenum E= 50 million psi Nickel E= 30 million psi Titanium E= 15.5 million psi Tungsten E= 59 million psi Carbon fiber E= 40 million psi Glass E= 10.4 million psi Composites E= 1 to 3 million psi Plastics E= 0.2 to 0.7 million psi

Hooke’s Law Hooke’s Law relates stress to strain by way of modulus
Hooke’s law says that strain can be calculated as long as the stress is lower than the maximum allowable stress or lower than the proportional limit. If the stress is higher than the proportional limit or max allowable stress than the part will fail and you can’t use Hooke’s law to calculate strain. Stress = modulus of elasticity, E, times strain Stress=  = load per area, P/A Strain=  = deformation per length,  /L Rearrange Hooke’s law Solving for deformation is Equation 10-5 With these equations you can find How much a rod can stretch without breaking. What the area is needed to handle load without breaking What diameter is needed to handle load without breaking Example 10-1 Example 10-3 Eqn 10-3 Eqn 10-4 Eqn 10-5

Problem solving techniques
Steps to solve most Statics problems Set-up problem Draw picture and label items (D, L, P, Stress, etc..) List known values in terms of units. Solve problem Make a Force balance with Free body diagram Identify normal forces Identify shear forces Write stress as Force per unit area Calculate area from set-up, or Calculate force from set-up Write Hooke’s law Rearrange for deflections Write deflections balance Solve for problem unknowns Eqn 10-3 Eqn 10-4 Eqn 10-5
