Strength of Materials
In engineering point of view the terms Strength of materials may be defined as one of the major parts in engineering and science.Generally this engineering methodology deals with nature of behavior of various materials of failure under various action and forces.
Definition of Stress
Whenever any external forces applies on a body or mass , on that same time equal and opposite forces try to react and resist at various section of the body.This internal forces per unit area at any section of the body is defined as Stress.
Basics of STRENGTH OF MATERIAL
MECHANICAL PROPERTY OF MATERIAL
The capacity of material to withstand load is called Strength.
Ability to sustain under loading condition without undue distortion, rupture or any collapse.
Maximum stress that any material can withstand is called Ultimate Strength.
On material, external load is applied, it undergoes deformation and on removal of load, it returns back to it’s original shape. This property of material is called Elasticity.
If material does not regain its original shape, on removal of the external load.
Ability of material to deform without breaking is called Plasticity.
If material can undergo a considerable deformation without rupture, it is called Ductility.
Ductile material is most suitable material for tension member.
Tension test performed on ductile material.
Stainless steel is most ductile material & Grey cast iron is least ductile material.
Higher the percentage of elongation, more ductile is material.
As temperature increase, ductility increase.
Metals having elongation more than 15% are ductile.
If material can not undergo any deformation and it fails by rupture.
Stronger in compression and weak in tension.
Materials having less than 5% elongation are considered as brittle.
Compression test performed on brittle material.
Property by which material can be converted in to thin sheets by hammering.
Material can easily rolled & forged without cracking.
Ex.:- Gold, Silver, Copper, Aluminium, Tin, Lead, Steel etc.
Gold is most malleable material while C.I is the least.
Resistance to impact or shock loading.
Capacity of material to absorb energy before rupture.
Work required to cause rupture.
Ability to withstand large stress and strains without fracture.
Ex.:- Mild steel, W.I., Manganese etc.
Steel used for cutting tools = High carbon steel.
Resistance to abrasion, wear or scratches.
C.I. is hardest material.
Magnesium alloy is softest material.
Resistance to deformation or strain.
Force required to produce unit deformation.
Stiffness measured by modulus of elasticity.
Higher E, more stiffness.
Steel is stiffer material.
Increase in strain under sustained load.
Inelastic deformation due to sustained load.
Creep phenomena used for steel cables, nuclear reactor field etc.
Slow extension of material with time under load.
- Fatigue Strength
Maximum stress which material can withstand under repeated stress cycles without fracture is called Fatigue Strength.
- Endurance Limit :- Stress at which a material factures under large number of reversals of stress is called endurance limit.
- Homogeneous material :- Material of the member is of the same kind through its length.
- Isotropic material :- It possesses the same elastic properties in all the direction.
On a body when external force is applied, it undergoes some deformation and internal resisting forces are set up. This resistance to force per unit area is called Stress.
Stress = Force/ Area = P/A = ς
S.I. Unit = N/mm2 (MPa) 1 Pa = 1 N/m2
Ratio of change in length to the original length.
Strain = Change in length /Original length = δl/l = ε
Direct or Normal Stress :- The stresses which act normal to plane on which the forces act are called Normal or Direct Stress.
- TENSION STRESS
Body subjected to two equal & opposite pulls, the stress produced is Tensile stress.
Stress is tensile, corresponding strain is Tensile Strain.
- COMPRESSIVE STRESS
Body subjected to two equal & opposite pushs, the stress produced is Compressive Stress.
Stress is compressive, corresponding strain is Compressive Strain.
- Elastic Limit :- Maximum value of force up to and within which to deformation entirely disappears on removal of force is elastic limit.
- Hooke’s Law :- “Within elastic limit, Stress is proportional to Strain.”
MODULUS OF ELASTICITY
Also known as Young’s Modulus.
Ratio of Direct stress to Direct strain.
M.O.E. = Stress/Strain = ς/ε
S.I. Unit = N/mm2
For Mild Steel E = 2 x 105 N/mm2
Modulus of elasticity is Highest for Steel.
Modulus of elasticity is least for Wood.
For Perfectly rigid body, M.O.E. = Infinity.
Reciprocal of M.O.E is called Coefficient of Compressibility (StrainStress).
