Introduction:

In our day to day work we engineers come across different materials like cement, concrete, still
etc. which are used to complete our project. For selecting suitable material every one of us is
interested to know the strength.

The ability of element of the structure to resist its failure under the application of external force is
known as strength of material and the ability to resist deformation is known as stiffness of that
material.

It has been observed that the material first deforms and then failure takes place. A detailed study
of forces and their effects along with suitable protective measures is known as strength of
material.

Behavior of material:

Whenever force acts on body it undergoes deformation and some resistance to deformation. When
external force is removed the resistance force will vanish and body come back to original shape
and size. If is only possible if deformation due to external force is within certain limit. This limit
is known as Elastic Limit.

Elasticity:

## Strength of Materials - I Page 1

The ability of material to retain its original shape and size perfectly after removal of load is known
as Elasticity.

Elastic Limit:

Limit within which the body behaves perfectly elastic is known as Elastic Limit.

Stress:

Every material is elastic in nature thats why whenever external force acts on body, body undergoes
deformation. As a body undergoes deformation its molecule set up some resistance to the
deformation. Resistance per unit deformation is known as stress

Stress () = =

## Unit: N/mm2 or MPa or GPa

Note: Tensile stresses will be treated as positive and compressive stress is treated as negative.

Strain:

Strain is the ratio of change in dimension to original dimension. Strain is denoted as (e). Strain is
a dimensionless quantity.

Hooks Law:

Mathematically,

Stress strain

=Ee

## where E = Youngs Modulus

E = =

= and =

Where,

P = Force or Load

L = length of member

## A = area of cross section

E = modulus of elasticity

## Stress strain relationship for ductile Material:

By Hooks law within elastic limit stress is directly proportional to strain. From point O to A stress
is directly proportional to strain. Therefore point A is called as proportionality limit. After that, at
point B mild still regain its size and shape after removal of load. This point is called as elastic
limit. At point C stress remains constant and strain increases and material enters at plastic zone but
it can still regain its size and shape after removal of load. Point C is called as upper yield point and

## Strength of Materials - I Page 3

point D is called as lower yield point. As load increases it reaches at point E where he stress
becomes highest and it is called ultimate stress.

Every material has its own limit. Stress increases can crosses the permissible limit and breaks at
point F so point F is called as breaking point.

## Stress strain relationship for brittle Material:

The initial point OA of the graph is straight line. It indicates that the stress is directly proportional
to strain, hence Hooks law is obeys. The stress corresponding to point A is called elastic limit. If
stress corresponding to point E is removed then wire regains its original length completely.

Numerical:

1) A bar of length 1.2 m extends through 3 mm under the action of axial pull of 2.5 kN.
Compute strain in material if diameter of bar is 20 mm. Find stress in bar.
2) A wooden bar of 8 m long, 100 mm wide and 120 mm thick is subjected to an action pull
of 50 kN and stretch is 4 mm. Calculate value of strain for the material

c. Modulus of elasticity
3) A short timber post of rectangular cross section has one post side of section is 2 times the
other and is loaded with 10 kN force when it contracts by 0.0525 mm foe 1 m length.
Modulus of elasticity is 12 Gpa. Calculate sectional dimensions of post.
4) A load of 10 kN is to be rest with the help of steel wire. Find the minimum diameter of
steel wire if stresses is not to exceed 100 MPa.

Factor of safety:

## It is the ratio of maximum stress to the working stress.

maximum stress
Factor of safety = working stress

In case of ductile material failure of material occurs once it reaches plastic deformation hence
Factor of safety is based upon yield point stress.

## Strength of Materials - I Page 4

Yiels stress
Factor of safety = working stress

## In case of brittle material Factor of safety depends upon ultimate stress.

ultimate stress
Factor of safety = working stress

Principle of Superposition:

According to principle of superposition when number of loads are acting on a body the
resulting strain will be sum of stress caused by each individual loads.

THERMAL STRESSES AND STRAINS

## A change in temperature of an object tends to produce change in its dimensions. It is a property of

material to expand or contract as per change in temperature. If these natural tendencies are allowed
then there is no strain and no stress is developed in the member.

If deformation of body is prevented, some stresses are induced in body. Such stresses are called as
thermal stresses and corresponding strain are called as thermal strain.

Thermal strains:

If temperature of an elastic body is changed and corresponding change in length is totally and
partially then strain set up in member is called as thermal strain.

Thermal Strain =

Thermal strains are usually reversible in nature since that member retains its original shape when
it is brought to original temperature.

Thermal stresses:

If a body allowed to expand or contract freely with rise or fall in temperature then no stresses are
induced in body. If these expansion or contraction is prevented then internal resisting forces are
developed. Stresses caused by these internal processes are called as thermal stresses. Stress
developed is in accordance with change in length prevented.

According to law of linear expansion, the strain in prismatic bar is proportional to change in
temperature.

of axial deformation to original length of body is known as longitudinal or linear strain.

Introduction:

Column:

1) Short column
2) Long column

Eccentric load is a load whose line of action does not coincide with axis of the section. The
eccentricity of load may be about one of the axis or about both the axes.

M = Pex MX = Pex

MY = PeY

## Consider a column subjected to load P at an eccentricity e from centroidal axis. Hence e is

known as eccentricity of the load as shown in Figure A.

## Strength of Materials - I Page 25

To understand the concept of Direct and Bending stresses, apply along the axis of the column two
equal and opposite forces P. Due to application of these forces resultant effect is zero and there
is no effect on column. With the help of principle of superposition we will split the forces as shown
in Figure C and D.

## In figure C load P is acting axially, therefore stresses induced is given by,

= which is known as Direct Stress.

In figure D two equal and opposite forces are acting at a distance e and will create couple and
couple will induce bending stress in cross section.

Hence an eccentric load will produce a direct as well as bending stress. As these stresses are normal
to cross section, hence these stresses may be algebraically added into a single resultant stress as
shown in Figure A.

load of 300 kN as shown in Figure below. Determine Max and Min stresses on section
and draw stress distribution pattern.
2) In above problem if min stress on section is zero then find out min eccentricity of point
load and find corresponding resultant stresses.
3) If load is acting at an eccentricity of 50 mm from centroidal axis of column, find out
resultant stress and stress distribution pattern.

## Strength of Materials - I Page 27

CONCEPT OF KERNEL OR CORE OF THE SECTION

The cement concrete columns are weak in tension and strong in compression hence the load must
be applied in this column in such a way that there should be no tensile stress induced in cross
section.

But when eccentric load is acting on column it will produce direct as well as bending stress. The
resultant stress at any point is algebraic sum of these two stresses.

## 1) RECTANGULAR CROSS SECTION:

Consider a solid rectangular cross section of width b and thickness or depth das shown in
following Figure.

Due to eccentric load stresses are induced in column. For no tensile stresses in column direct stress
(d) should be greater than or equal to bending stress (b).

Shear force:
The algebraic sum of vertical forces at any section of a beam to the right or left of the
section is known as shear force.
Shear force diagram:
A S.F.D. is one which shows the variation of the S.F. along the length of the beam.

Bending moment:

The algebraic sum of Moments of all the forces acting to the right or left of the section is
known as bending Moment.

## Bending moment diagram:

A B.M.D. is one which shows the variation of the B.M. along the length of the beam.
Sign conversions for shear force & bending moment:
1) Shear Force:
a) The shear force at a section will be considered positive when the resultant of the forces to
the left to the section is upwards or to the right of the section is downwards.
b) Similarly, the S.F. at a section will be considered negative if the resultant of the forces to
the left of the section is downwards, or to the right of the section is upwards.
2) Bending Moment:
a) The bending Moment will be considered positive when the Moment of the forces & Reactions
on the left portion is clockwise & on the right portion is anticlockwise.
b) The Bending Moment will be considered negative when the moment of the Forces &
Reactions on the left portion is anti-clockwise & on the right portion clockwise.
3) Important Points for driving S.F.D. & B.M.D.
a. Always consider left or right port of the section.
b. Add Forces (including reaction) normal to the beam on one of the portion.
Note:-
a) If right port of the section is chosen a force on the right port acting downwards is
positive. While a force on the right portion acting Upwards is negative.
b) IF left port of section is chosen, a Force on the Left port acting upwards is positive while
a Force on the left port acting downwards is Negative.

## Strength of Materials - I Page 32

c) The positive values of S.F. & B.M. are plotted above the base line, & negative values
below the base line.
d) The S.F.D. Will increase or decrease suddenly i.e.by a vertical straight line at a section
where there is a vertical point load.
e) The S.F. between any two vertical loads will be constant & hence the S.F.D. Between
two vertical loads will be horizontal.
f) The bending Moment at the two supports of a simply supported beam & at the free end of
a cantilever will be zero.

Derivation:

Consider a simply supported beam subjected to uniformly distributed load having cross sectional
dimensions b and d. Consider two sections AB and CD at a distance dx apart as shown in Figure
below.

## Strength of Materials - I Page 33

We know,

f= y

Due to moment (M) on face AB, the stress induced is given by,

Now,

FAB = A = ( y)A

THEORY QUESTIONS

BENDING STRESSES:

The stress induced in the beam to resist the bending moment is known as bending stresses.

1) Whenever a beam is subjected to external transverse loading, the beam will bend. As the
beam bends resistance to the action sets up.
2) When every cross section is set up full resistance to bending moment acting on it the
process of bending will stop.
3) If bending moment is applied the resistance induced internally is bending stress.
4) The external force is shear force, and then the internal resistance is shear stress.
5) The bending stress is in the form of tension or compressive stresses in the cross section.
6) These stresses are normal stresses. The portion of cross section where bending are tensile
are known as tensile zone and where compressive are known as compressive zone.

PURE BENDING:

Consider a cantilever beam AB, fixed at A and free at B. At any cross section of beam, there is no
shear force. Bending moment at any cross is constant and i.e. M. This is the case of pure bending.

## Strength of Materials - I Page 40

ASSUMPTIONS MADE IN THEORY OF PURE BENDING

## 1) Material is homogenous and isotropic.

2) Beam is straight before bending.
3) Beam has uniform cross section throughout its length.
4) Transverse section of beam which is plane before bending remains plane after bending.
5) The material is elastic, Hooks law is applicable.
6) Modulus of elasticity remains same in tension and in compression.
7) The effect of shear is totally neglected. Therefore the analysis is made for pure bending.
8) The beam is composed of infinite number of layers along its length. Each layer is free to
expand or contract independently of layer above or below to it.
9) The beam is initially straight and all longitudinal fibers bends in circular arc having
common centre of curvature.

## CLASSIC FLEXURAL EQUATION

The flexural stresses will be maximum at extreme fibers i.e. maximum compressive stress will
be at extreme fiber and maximum tensile stress will be at extreme tensile fiber.

fc = yc

ft = yt

a) The cross section is subjected to sagging bending moment for finding moment of
resistance. Moment of resistance is capacity of cross section to resist the bending
moment.
b) The moment of resistance cannot be changed for a cross section and is always same for
the cross section.
c) The applied moment should be less than the moment of resistance.
d) If permissible stress in tension and compression are different, than the moment carrying
capacity in tension and compression is to be found separately by considering
respectively extreme fiber stresses and smallest one is accounted as moment capacity
of cross section or moment of resistance of cross section.

Theory Questions:

## 1) Explain the term: Equivalent Section (03)

2) Define the term: Flitched Beam (02)
3) Explain the term: Moment of Resistance(03)

Introduction:

A section made up of two or more material joined together in such a way that they behave like a
single piece & each material cross section bends to the same radius of curvature. Such beams are
used when a beam of one material required is of large cross section which does not suite for the
space available.

Hence one material is reinforced with another material of higher strength in order to reduce the
cross section of the beam. This is known as Composite Section.

Definition:

A beam made up of two or more different materials assumed to be rigidly connected together &
behaving like a single piece is known as composite beam or wooden Flitched Beam.

## Strength of Materials - I Page 54

The total moment of resistance of composite section will be equal to the sum of moment of

Theory Questions:

Definition of Torsion:

A torsional moment may be defined as resultant moment about polar or longitudinal axis to the
right or left of the section is known as torsional moment or twisting moment. When a tangential
force is applied to a shaft at the circumference of its transverse cross section, the shaft is said to be
subjected to twisting moment.
When prism bar is subjected to equal and opposite couple acting on two parallel planes at right
angles to the axis of bar, the cross section twists relative to each other and is said to be subjected
to torsion.

Definition of Shaft:

A member subjected to torsion is known as shaft. A circular shaft is used for power
transmission is an example of bar subjected to torsion.

## 1) Circular cross section before twisting remains Circular after twisting.

2) The shaft is straight and uniform throughout the section.
3) The shaft material is homogeneous and isotropic.
4) Plane section remains plane after twisting.
5) Radius of cross section remains plane after twisting.
6) The twisting moment applied in planes which are perpendicular to the axis of shaft.
7) The torsional stresses are well below the proportional limit of the material.

INTRODUCTION:

In day to day life we come across cylindrical tanks containing fluids like boiler, pipes, and steel
pipes tec. The cylinder which is having metal thickness very small as compared to its diameter is
known as thin cylindrical shell. For thin cylindrical shell, the thickness should be less than or equal
1
to 20 of its internal diameter.

Whenever the cylindrical shell is empty it is subjected t atmospheric pressure from inside as well
as outside. Hence, the resultant pressure is zero.

When the shell is subjected to internal pressure, its wall is subjected tensile stresses. The failure
of thin cylindrical shells may be in two ways. It may split in two through or into two cylinders.

When the thin cylindrical shell is subjected to internal pressure the walls are subjected to two types
of stress i.e.

## 1) Circumferential (Hoop) stress

2) Longitudinal stress

a. Proof Resilliance
b. Modulus of Resilliance:
2) What do you mean by Proof Resilliance? (03)
3) Obtain an expression for strain energy stored in a body when the load is applied with

(04)
6) Give the expression for strain energy due to axial force. (03)
7) Derive the equation of strain energy due to bending. (03)

Strain energy:

Whenever a body is strained, the energy absorbed by the body due to straining effect is known as
Strain energy

When the member is loaded, whether gradually or Suddenly or Impact, the bat deforms and work
is done. The material behaves like a perfect spring and oscillates about its mean position. If the
elastic limit is not exceeded this work stored in the member is Strain energy.

## Strength of Materials - I Page 67

Resilliance:

The total Strain energy stored in the body is known as Resilliance. Whenever the applied force is
removed from the strained body, the body is capable of doing the work hence Resilliance can be
defined as the capacity of trained body for doing work on the removal of applied load.

Proof Resilliance:

It is defined as the maximum strain energy which can be stored by the body which can be stored
by the body without undergoing permanent deformation.

The energy stored in the body will be maximum when the body is stressed upto elastic limit.

Modulus of Resilliance:

## Strain Energy stored due to Axial Force:

When a member is subjected to axial load, it undergoes axial deformation. Also the resistance is
set up in the member gradually within the limit of proportionality the relation between resistance
set up and deformation is always linear.

ASSUMPTIONS OF LINEAR ELASTICITY

In order to evaluate the stresses, strains and displacements in an elasticity problem, one
needs to derive a series of basic equations and boundary conditions. Therefore, some basic
assumptions have to be made about the properties of the body considered to arrive at
possible solutions. The following are the assumptions in classical elasticity.

## 1. The Body is Continuous

Here the whole volume of the body is considered to be filled with continuous
matter, without any void. Only under this assumption, can the physical quantities
in the body, such as stresses, strains and displacements, be continuously
distributed and thereby expressed by continuous functions of coordinates in space.

However, these assumptions will not lead to significant errors so long as the
dimensions of the body are very large in comparison with those of the particles and
with the distances between neighbouring particles.

## The body is considered to wholly obey Hooke's law of elasticity, which

shows the linear relations between the stress components and strain components.
Under this assumption, the elastic constants will be independent of the magnitudes
of stress and strain components.

## 3. The Body is Homogenous

In this case, the elastic properties are the same throughout the body. Thus, the
elastic constants will be independent of the location in the body. Under this
assumption, one can analyse an elementary volume isolated from the body and then
apply the results of analysis to the entire body.

## 4. The Body is Isotropic

Here, the elastic properties in a body are the same in all directions. Hence, the
elastic constants will be independent of the orientation of coordinate axes.

## 5. The Displacements and Strains are Small

The displacement components of all points of the body during deformation are very
small in comparison with its original dimensions and the strain components and
the rotations of all line elements are much smaller than unity. Hence, when

formulating the equilibrium equations relevant to the deformed state, the lengths
and angles of the body before deformation are used. In addition, when
geometrical equations involving strains and displacements are formulated, the
squares and products of the small quantities are neglected. Therefore, these two
measures are necessary to linearize the algebraic and differential equations in
elasticity for their easier solution.
