stress-strain curve.

every material, irrespective of the
dimensions of the material.
Tensile Testing is done to check for
the stress-strain properties of a
material.
into brittle and ductile on the basis
of stress-strain diagram.
DUCTILE MATERIALS
Ductile materials are classified with their ability to yield
at normal temperatures.
Yield strength
Ultimate Strength
Breaking Strength
Strain Hardening?
Examples?
BRITTLE MATERIALS
Rupture occurs without prior
change in the rate of elongation.
Absence of necking.
DUCTILE MATERIALS
Yield point is not clear for some ductile materials i.e.
aluminum
Yield strength can be defined by using the offset
method.
For example 0.2% offset
DUCTILE MATERIALS : MEASURE
A standard measure of ductility of a material is Percent
Elongation, defined as :
Percent Elongation = 100

Where L0 = initial length of the test material
And LB = final length at the rupture
Another measure is Percent Reduction in Area , defined as:
Percent Reduction in Area = 100

Where A0 = initial cross-section of the test material
And AB = final cross-section at the rupture

For ductile materials, stress-stress curve would be
similar, up till the strain hardening.
Necking cannot occur in the compression.
For brittle materials ultimate strength in compression is
much larger.
TRUE STRESS AND TRUE STRAIN
The stress taken so far is
also known as
engineering stress.
True stress is obtained
by dividing the applied
force by the deformed
area. = P/A.
Similarly, True Strain is
successive values of
strain:
HOOKES LAW; MODULUS OF
ELASTICITY
Who? Capn hook?
HOOKES LAW
For the initial straight line portion of the stress-strain
diagram, the stress is directly proportional to strain:

The relation is known as Hookes Law.
The coefficient E is known as modulus of
elasticity of Youngs modulus . Units?
HOOKES LAW
The largest value of stress for which the Hookes law
can be used is known as the proportional limit.
Isotropic materials : properties like modulus of
elasticity, stress, strain are independent of the force
applied.

Anisotropic materials:
properties like modulus of
elasticity, stress and strain
are dependent on the
direction of the force applied.
Examples of anisotropic
materials?
ELASIC vs PLASTIC BEHAVIOR
If the strain disappears when the force applied is
removed, the material is said to be behaving
elastically.
The largest value of stress for which a material
behaves elastically is known as elastic limit.
If the deformation is permanent, the material is
said to have undergone plastic deformation.
ELASIC vs PLASTIC BEHAVIOR

limits.
This phenomenon is known as fatigue.
Fatigue must be considered in design of all
structures.

object fails can be
found experimentally.
The maximum stress is
plotted as abscissa and
the number of cycles
as ordinate to obtain a
-n curve:
