Stress () - Force or load per unit area of cross-section over
which the force or load is acting (tension (+),
compression (-), or shear).
Strain () - Elongation change in dimension per unit length.
(stretching (+), compressing (-)) (it is UNITLESS)
Poissons ratio () ratio of the lateral and axial strains
Students should know this terminology
Poisson s ratio () ratio of the lateral and axial strains.
Youngs modulus (E) - The slope of the linear, elastic region
part of the stress-strain curve (also known as modulus
of elasticity).
Shear modulus (G) - The slope of the linear part of the shear
stress-shear strain curve.

Shear strain is the ratio of deformation to the original dimension.
In the case of shear strain, though, it's the amount of deformation perpendicular to a
given line rather than parallel to it. The ratio turns out to be tan , where is the
angle the sheared line makes with its original orientation. With shear strain we are
only concerned about the change in angles.
Shear strain = = Tan

E = Modulus of Elasticity (MPa, GPa, psi, ksi, msi)
What does the elastic modulus mean?
E=207 GPa = 30 msi
If two bars are 1 meter long and are stressed to 200 MPa (29
ksi), the steel bar will stretch 0.97 mm and the aluminum will
stretch 2.90 mm (steel is 3 times as stiff as aluminum).
E=69 GPa = 10 msi
Steel, L = L = L(/E) = 1000 mm (200MPa /207,000MPa) = 0.966 mm
Aluminum, L = 1000 mm (200MPa/69,000MPa) = 2.90 mm

Measuring Force
All force sensing devices deform
under an applied load. We usually
measure this deformation by the use
of strain gages and translate the
measured strain into an applied force.

Some materials (very ductile) have essentially no linear
portion to their stress-strain curve, for example, soft
copper or gray cast iron. For these materials, the offset
yield method cannot be used and the usual practice is to
define the yield strength as the stress to produce some
total strain (source www key to steel com) total strain. (source www.key-to-steel.com)
Most brittle materials (ceramics and concrete) do not
have a yield point. In these materials the ultimate
strength is also called the rupture strength.

Surface hardness testing
10
Defined as the Resistance to plastic deformation.
High hardness means:
--resistance to plastic deformation or cracking in compression.
--better wear properties. (wear is a surface problem)
Mostly used as a quality control type of test
e.g.,
10 h
apply known force
(1 to 1000g)
measure size
of indent after
Hardness
10mm sphere
d D
Smaller indents
mean larger
hardness.
Hardness is not an intrinsic material property dictated by precise
definitions in terms of fundamental units of mass, length and time.
A hardness property value is the result of a defined measurement
procedure. It is just a number obtained from a hardness test.
Brinell, Vickers, Knoop and Rockwell Hardness Indenters
ASTM E10
ASTM E384
Table 6.5
Knoop (pronounced nup)
ASTM E18
ASTM D785
from Newage Testing Instruments Inc.
Table 6.6
The general procedure for all hardness tests is to first apply a
minor load to ensure that the indenter is engaged with the
surface. After the minor load is placed on the indenter, the
position of the indenter is zeroed and the major load is applied.
The deflection under the major load is measured and used to
calculate the number representing the materials hardness.

Typical Application of Rockwell Hardness Scales
HRA . . . . Cemented carbides, thin steel and shallow case hardened steel
HRB . . . . Copper alloys, soft steels, aluminum alloys, malleable irons, etc.
HRC . . . . Steel, hard cast irons, case hardened steel and other materials harder than 100 HRB
HRD . . . . Thin steel and medium case hardened steel and malleable iron
HRE . . . . Cast iron, aluminum and magnesium alloys, bearing metals
HRF . . . . Annealed copper alloys, thin soft sheet metals
HRG . . . . Phosphor bronze, beryllium copper, malleable irons, Aluminum, zinc, lead
HRK . . . . }

HRM . . . .} . . . . Soft bearing metals, plastics and other very soft materials
HRP } HRP . . . . }
HRR . . . . }
HRS . . . . }
HRV . . . . }
Advantages of the Rockwell hardness method include the direct Rockwell hardness number
readout and rapid testing time. Disadvantages include many arbitrary non-related scales and
possible effects from the specimen support anvil (try putting paper under a test block and take
note of the effect on the hardness reading! Vickers and Brinell methods don't suffer from this
effect).

Remember that we are measuring hardness on the surface
and that the hardness underneath is probably lower

Stress and strain: These are size-independent
measures of load and displacement, respectively.
Elastic behavior: This reversible behavior often
shows a linear relation between stress and strain.
To minimize deformation, select a material with a
large elastic modulus (E or G).
Summary
Plastic behavior: This permanent deformation
behavior occurs when the tensile (or compressive)
uniaxial stress reaches sy.
Toughness: The energy needed to break a unit
volume of material (area under stress-strain diagram).
Ductility: The plastic strain at failure (total strain elastic strain).
