## 6. Simple stresses and strains

The subject strength of materials deals with the relations
between externally applied loads and their internal effects on
bodies. The bodies are no longer assumed to be rigid and the
deformations, however small, are of major interest
The subject, strength of materials or mechanics of materials
involves analytical methods for determining the strength ,
stiffness (deformation characteristics), and stability of various
Alternatively the subject may be called the mechanics of solids.

GENERAL CONCEPTS
STRESS
No engineering material is perfectly rigid and hence,
when a material is subjected to external load, it
undergoes deformation.
While undergoing deformation, the particles of the
material offer a resisting force (internal force). When
this resisting force equals applied load the equilibrium
condition exists and hence the deformation stops.
These internal forces maintain the externally applied
forces in equilibrium.

STRESS

## The internal force resisting the deformation per unit area is

called as stress or intensity of stress.

## Stress = internal resisting force / resisting cross sectional

area

STRESS
SI unit for stress
N/m2 also designated as a pascal (Pa)
Pa = N/m2
kilopascal, 1kPa = 1000 N/m2
megapascal, 1 MPa = 1106 N/m2
= 1106 N/(106mm2) = 1N/mm2
1 MPa = 1 N/mm2
gigapascal, 1GPa = 1109 N/m2
= 1103 MPa
= 1103 N/mm2

P

## Consider a uniform bar of cross

sectional area A, subjected to a
tensile force P.

P
R

## Consider a section AB normal to

the direction of force P
Let R is the total resisting force
acting on the cross section AB.

STRESS

## Then for equilibrium condition,

R

R=P
Then from the definition of stress,
normal stress = = R/A = P/A
P

Symbol:

= Normal Stress

STRESS

Direct or Normal
Stress:
Intensity of resisting force perpendicular to or normal
to the section is called the normal stress.
Normal stress may be tensile or compressive
Tensile stress:
stresses that cause pulling on the surface of
the section, (particles of the materials tend to pull apart
causing extension in the direction of force)
Compressive stress: stresses that cause pushing on the
surface of the section, (particles of the materials tend to push
together causing shortening in the direction of force)

STRESS
The resultant of the internal forces for
an axially loaded member is normal
to a section cut perpendicular to the
member axis.
The force intensity on that section is
defined as the normal stress.

STRAIN
STRAIN :
when a load acts on the material it will undergo
deformation. Strain is a measure of deformation produced by
the application of external forces.
If a bar is subjected to a direct load, and hence a stress, the
bar will changes in length. If the bar has an original length L
and change in length by an amount L, the linear strain
produced is defined as,

STRESS-STRAIN DIAGRAM
In order to compare the strength of various materials it is
necessary to carry out some standard form of test to establish
their relative properties.
One such test is the standard tensile test in which a circular
bar of uniform cross section is subjected to a gradually
increasing tensile load until failure occurs.
Measurement of change in length over a selected gauge
length of the bar are recorded throughout the loading
operation by means of extensometers.
A graph of load verses extension or stress against strain is
drawn as shown in figure.

and lower yield point and also the elastic range and plastic range

Limit of Proportionality :
From the origin O to a point called proportionality limit the
stress strain diagram is a straight line. That is stress is
proportional to strain. Hence proportional limit is the maximum
stress up to which the stress strain relationship is a straight
line and material behaves elastically.
From this we deduce the well known relation, first postulated
by Robert Hooke, that stress is proportional to strain.
Beyond this point, the stress is no longer proportional to strain

Stress-strain Diagram
Elastic limit:
It is the stress beyond which the material will not return to its
original shape when unloaded but will retain a permanent
deformation called permanent set. For most practical purposes
it can often be assumed that points corresponding proportional
limit and elastic limit coincide.
Beyond the elastic limit plastic deformation occurs and strains
are not totally recoverable. There will be thus some permanent
deformation when load is removed.

Rupture strength (Nominal Breaking stress):

stress is somewhat lower than ultimate strength because the

After yield point the graph becomes much more shallow and
covers a much greater portion of the strain axis than the
elastic range.
The capacity of a material to allow these large plastic
deformations is a measure of ductility of the material
Ductile Materials:
The capacity of a material to allow large extension i.e. the
ability to be drawn out plastically is termed as its ductility.
Material with high ductility are termed ductile material.
Example: Low carbon steel, mild steel, gold, silver, aluminum

such that they produce a anticlockwise moment equal to ( P

Bulk Modulus
Bulk Modulus
A body subjected to three mutually perpendicular equal direct
stresses undergoes volumetric change without distortion of
shape.
If V is the original volume and dV is the change in volume,
then dV/V is called volumetric strain.
A body subjected to three mutually perpendicular equal direct
stresses then the ratio of stress to volumetric strain is called
Bulk Modulus.

## Consider a square element ABCD of side a subjected to pure shear

. DA'B'C is the deformed shape due to shear . Drop a perpendicular
AH to diagonal A'C.
Strain in the diagonal AC = /E (- /E)
[ n = ]
= /E [ 1 + ] -----------(1)
Strain along the diagonal AC=(A'CAC)/AC=(A'CCH)/AC=A'H/AC

In le AA'H
Cos 45 = A'H/AA'
A'H= AA' 1/2
AC = 2 AD
Strain along the diagonal AC = AA'/ (2 2 AD)=/2 ----(2)
Modulus of rigidity = G = /
= /G
Substituting in (2)
Strain along the diagonal AC = /2G -----------(3)
Equating (1) & (3)
/2G = /E[1+]
E=2G(1+ )

## Relationship between E, G, and K:We have

E = 2G( 1+ ) -----------(1)
E = 3K( 1-2) -----------(2)
Equating (1) & (2)
2G( 1+ ) =3K( 1- 2)
2G + 2G=3K- 6K
= (3K- 2G) /(2G +6K)
Substituting in (1)
E = 2G[ 1+(3K 2G)/ (2G+6K)]
E = 18GK/( 2G+6K)
E = 9GK/(G+3K)

## (1) A bar of certain material 50 mm square is subjected to an axial

pull of 150KN. The extension over a length of 100mm is 0.05mm
and decrease in each side is 0.0065mm. Calculate (i) E (ii) (iii) G
(iv) K
Solution:
(i) E = Stress/ Strain = (P/A)/ (dL/L) = (150103 100)/(50 50 0.05)
E = 1.2 x 105N/mm2
(ii) = Lateral strain/ Longitudinal strain = (0.0065/50)/(0.05/100) = 0.26
(iii) E = 2G(1+ )
G= E/(2 (1+ )) = (1.2 105)/ (2 (1+ 0.26)) = 0.47 105N/mm2
(iv) E = 3K(1-2)
K= E/(1-2) = (1.2 105)/ (3 (1- 2 0.26)) = 8.3 104N/mm2

## (2) A tension test is subjected on a mild steel tube of external

diameter 18mm and internal diameter 12mm acted upon by
an axial load of 2KN produces an extension of 3.36 x 103mm on a length of 50mm and a lateral contraction of 3.62
x 10-4mm of outer diameter. Determine E, ,G and K.
(i) E = Stress/Strain = (2 103 50)/ (/4(182 122) 3.36 10-3)
= 2.11 105N/mm2
ii) =lateral strain/longitudinal strain = [(3.62 10-4)/18]/[(3.36 10-3)/50]
iii) E = 2G (1 + )

= 0.3

## G = E / 2(1+ ) = (2.11 105)/(2 1.3) = 81.15 103N/mm2

iv) E = 3K(1 -2 )
K = E/ [3(1-2 )] = (2.11105)/{3[1-(2 0.3)]} = 175.42 103N/mm2

## Working stress: It is obvious that one cannot take risk of

loading a member to its ultimate strength, in practice. The
maximum stress to which the material of a member is
subjected to in practice is called working stress.
This value should be well within the elastic limit in elastic
design method.
Factor of safety: Because of uncertainty of loading
conditions, design procedure, production methods, etc.,
designers generally introduce a factor of safety into their
design, defined as follows
Factor of safety = Maximum stress or Yield stress (or proof stress)
Allowable working
Allowable working
stress
stress

## Malleability: A property closely related to ductility, which

defines a materials ability to be hammered out in to thin
sheets
Homogeneous: A material which has a uniform structure
throughout without any flaws or discontinuities.
Isotropic: If a material exhibits uniform properties throughout
in all directions ,it is said to be isotropic.
Anisotropic: If a material does not exhibit uniform properties
throughout in all directions ,it is said to be anisotropic or
nonisotropic.
