Example text

20 mm is 36 kN. 01 is given by: σ= force 36000 N = area 100 × 10 −6 m 2 = 360 × 106 Pa = 360 MPa (f) When the stress is 200 MPa, then force = area × stress = (100 × 10–6)(200 × 106) = 20 kN Determine for the specimen: (a) Young’s modulus of elasticity (b) the yield stress (c) the tensile strength (d) the percentage elongation and (e) the percentage reduction in area. 30 mm Problem 5. 143 mm, load at yield point = 80 kN, maximum load on specimen = 120 kN, final cross-sectional area of waist at fracture = 90 mm2, and the gauge length had increased to 135 mm at fracture.

Determine the stress in the tube. e. 6 Strain The fractional change in a dimension of a material produced by a force is called the strain. For a tensile or compressive force, strain is the ratio of the change of length to the original length. The symbol used for strain is ε (Greek epsilon). e. A rectangular bar having a cross-sectional area of 80 mm2 has a tensile force of 20 kN applied to it. 8 MPa in the cable. 5 x L Part Two of the force. The symbol used for shear stress is the Greek letter tau, τ.

2 mm when a compressive load is applied to it. 30 m and it supports a compressive load of 50 kN. 6 mm when the load is applied. 5 mm thick metal plate, the shear stress needed to cause fracture is 100 MPa. A rectangular block of plastic material 400 mm long by 15 mm wide by 300 mm high has its lower face fixed to a bench and a force of 150 N is applied to the upper face and in line with it. The upper face moves 12 mm relative to the lower face. 7 Elasticity, limit of proportionality and elastic limit Elasticity is the ability of a material to return to its original shape and size on the removal of external forces.
