Complex Static Stresses
Complex Stress States:  and  in three directions Typical complex stress states: Biaxial stresses are stresses  applied along two axes of the element and  = 0. Triaxial stresses are stresses  applied along three axes of the element and  = 0. 4

Biaxial Stresses Consider a small plane element with plane stresses. Cut an angle  through the element and derive the equations for the stress normal to the new plane and the shear stress.  = 0   0 5

Triaxial Stress Normal stresses are in three dimensions.
Shear stress in each of these three dimensions is zero. The following element is in triaxial stress state. 9

Triaxial Strain Stresses usually act in all three directions
It is necessary to modify Hooke’s Law regarding stress and strain in the elastic range in order to include Poisson’s effects in each direction, caused by the strains in the other two directions. The generalized equations for Hooke’s Law are given below: 11

Purposes of Torsional Tests
The purposes of torsion tests usually parallel those for tension tests: Determine the proportional limit and the ultimate strength in shear Determine the modulus of rigidity (G) Plot stress-strain curve for material behavior in shear 12

Torsion Procedure and Set up
Torsion specimens: round bars Torsion apparatus: similar to tension The ends of a specimen should be securely gripped Apply torque Measure the torque and the angle of twist 13

Torsional Specimens The Torsion test is a test which places the specimen in pure shear. 14

Torsional Quantities 15

Elastic Shear Strength

Torsional Modulus of Resilience

Torsional Plastic Strength
Yielding begins at outer surface. Stress variation is no longer linear. Yielding continues until the cross section is fully yielded. 18
