Generally we handle a member in its elastic range. Structural members are all generally designed so as to remain in the riastic condition unde r the action of the working loads.

Resistance to Deformation A material when subjected to an external load system goes a deformation. Against this deformation the ateri al will m offer a resistance which tends to prevent the defonnatitin. This resistance is offered by the material as long as the ntember is forced to remmn in the deformed condition.

When the member is incapable of offering the necessary leristance against the external forces, the deformation wOl continue leading to the failure of the member. Stiem The force of resistance offered by a body against the is called the stress. The external force acting on the body is naiw the food.

Let us. Son XJf. In common usage the word sftoss is used to mean the intensity of stress. The ratio of the change in length to the original length of the memha iscalled strain. A When the resistance offered by a section of 0 Tensile stress.

The intensity of the tensile of the 1. The intensity of the compressive resistance or stress is given by. The ratio of the decrease in length to the original length is called a compressive strain. Let the bottom face of the block be fixed to a surface EF. Let a force P be applied tangentially along the top face of the block. Such a force acting tangentially along a surface is called a hear force. For the equilibrium of the block, the surface EF will offer a tangential reaction P equal and opposite to the applied tangential force P.

Let the block lx taken to consist of two parts G and H to which it is divided by a section XX. Consider the equilibrium of the part G. See Fig. The resistance R along the section XX is called a shear rests- tmee.

This type of ftflure is called a shear failure. In a shear failure, the two parts into which the block is separated, slide over each other. For the equifi. The intensity of the shear resistance along the section: XX is called the shear stress.

Shear deformation. When the block does not fail in shear, a shear deformation occurs as shown in Fig. Let us now imagine that the block consists of a number of horizontal layers. These horizontal layers have undergone horizontal displacements by dilferenl amounts with respect to the bottom face.

We can assume that the horizontal displacement of any horizontal layer is proportional to its distance from the lower face of the block. We could have considered any other horizontal layer say the layer which is at a distance x from the lower face.

XX Let the layer XX. A material is said to be elastic when it undergoes a deformation on the application of a loading such that the deformation disappears on the removal of the loading. When a member is subjected to an axial its section svill olfer a resistance or stress.

But this is true when the deformation caused by the loading is within a certain limit. For every maieriaJ the property of assuming or regaining its previous shape and size is exhibited on the removal of the loading, when the intensity of stress is within a certain limit called the elastic limit.

If the loading is so large that the intensity of stress exceeds the elastic limit, the member loses to some extent its pioperty of elasticity. If after exceeding the elastic limit the loading is removed, the member will not regain its original shape and a residual strain or permanent set remains. Hooke's law. It is observed that when a material is loaded such that the intensity of stress is within a certain limit, the ratio of the intensity of stress to the corresponding strain is a constant which is characteristic of that material.

II aUll d Temperature Stresses. When the temperature of a material changes there will be corres- ponding change in the dimension. When a member is free ta expand or contract due to rise or fall of temperature, no stresses will be induced in the member. But, if the natural change in length due to rise or fall of temperature be prevented, stresses will be offered.

Let the temperature rise by T. If the member is allowed to freely expand no stresses will be induced. But if the member is prevented from expanding, compressive stresses will be induced. This can be realized as follows. Let the rod B be of length t Let its ends A and B be fixed.

When the deformation of the member is within the elastic limit it is found that the ratio of the lateral strain to the longitu- dinal strain is a constant for a given material. This ratio is called. Volumetric Strain When a member is subjected to forces deforming it, it undergoes changes dimensions and hence its volume will be subjected to in its changes.

The ratio of the change in volume to the original volume is called the volumetric strain. This is usually denoted by ev Change in vo lume Original volume Let its diameter be d.

This is no doubt possible if the stresses py and pt may not all be like stresses Regarding tensile stresses as positive and com- pressive stresses as negative the volumetric strain can be determined. According to the above convention if c: Fig 54 a shows a rectangular bar of cross-sectional area A subjected to axial tensile load P Suppose we consider a normal cross-section 1 1 secticn normal to the axis of the member.

Now the poll P applied can be resolved into a normal compo- nent PnP cos 6 and a tangential component P sin 6. The above expressioss for the normal and tangential stress intensities may also be obtained as follows ; Consider unit area of the section Suppose the magnitude of the tensile force P be increased till failure occurs on the section The failure may be due to excessive normal stress pn or due to excessive tangential stress pi.

It is easily seen that there are two planes perpendicular to each other carrying the greatest shear stress and these planes are at 45 with the plane carrying the maximum normal stress. Element in a State of Simple Shear Fig. Let shear stresses of intensity q be set up on the faces A D and BC. Hence the forces acting on these faces, each of which equals q. AD, will form a couple. If the block should be in equilibrium, shear stresses of intensity say q' must be set up on the faces BA and DC.

The forces acting on these faces, each of which equals q' AB will form a restor- ing couple. This principle is called the principle of oomplementary shear stresses. Element in a State of Simple Shear. Consider an elemental rectangular block ABCD fig.

Consider a plane BE at angle 0 with the face BC. Consider the equilibrium of the wedge BEC. This is subjected to the following forces, Fi?.

Hence, we come to a very important conclusion. When an element is in a state of simple shear, maximum direct stresses are induced on mutually perpendicular planes which are at 45 to the planes of pure shear. One of the maximum direct stresses is tensile while the other maximum direct stress is compressive. These direct maximum tensile and compressive stress intensities are of the same magnitude as the intensity of shear stress on the planes of pure shear.

Consider the forces on the part ABD. Hence when there is equilibrium Ihe force V2a9 is resisted. The pure direct tensile and compressive stresses acting on the diagonal planes BD and AC are called diagonal tensile and diagonal compressive sti esses.

Suppose the elemental block ABCD is of a material very poor in offering tensile stresses, then, as the magnitude of the shear stress will fail due to excessive diagonal q goes on increasing the block tensile stress. On the contrary if the material is very poor in offering compressive stresses, then a failure may occur by crushing due to excessive diagonal compressive stress.

Consider a square block ABCD of side a and of thickness unity perpendicular to the plane of the drawing Fig. Let the block be subjected to shear stresses of intensity q as shown in the figure.

Due to these stresses the block will be subjected to a deformation such that the diagonal idC is elongated and the dta gnnal BD is shortened. Consider the diagonal AC. The increase in length of the dia- gonal can be computed by considering the effect of the diagonal tensile and diagonal compressive stresses.

We know Fig, The strain of the diagonal AC may also be determined from the geometry of the distorted shape of the block Fig. Bulk Modulus. We find that the ratio of thr. When the deformation is within a certain limit, this ratio is called the bulk modulus and is usually denoted by K. Let the faces of the cube be subjected to a direct stress of intensity p. Let E be the Youngs Modulus, and the Poissons ratio. Let us now consider the strain of one of the edges, say, AB. A rectangular block 25 cm.

StniB Energy. When a load is applied on a member, the member is deformed. The member offers a resistance against this deformation.

We know that the internal resistance offered by the member is the total stress in the member. It is very important to note that only when the member has the capacity to offer a resistance to the deformation, a stress will be induced in the member, when the member is subjected to a deformation.

Suppose the top end A of the rod is fixed and the bottom end B is pulled down, so that the rod is extended by. In this position if R is the resistance offered by the member against the exten- sion. Stress intensity p" I. Since the bar is in equilibrium after Pip. The resistance at any instant depends upon the extension at that instant. This w ork done on the member will be stored by the mem- ber as energy and is called strain energy.

Strain energy is the energy absorbed or stored by a member when work is done on it to deform it.

Suppose a member is of such a material that it docs not offer any resistance at all against the deformation. Such a member can- not regain its original shape after the load producing the deforma- tion IS removed, in oihcr words when the member allows itself to be deformed without oHering any resistance at all. A member iraich allows itself to be deformed without any resistance is said to teptoyc. When a member is in a plastic stage, no stress will be uiduoed by its section due to any deformation of the member.

Amcmber which allows itself to be deformed, bat will offci a mistanoe to the iteformation is said to be elastic. When the external load producing the dc- focmatiofi is mraber will regain its original dimension.

Strucniral members, we come across, are neither plastic nor rigid. In general, structural members are elastic allowing themselves to be deformed and offering a resistance against the deformation when the deformation is within the elasic limit. If the member is deformed beyond the elastic limit, the member will certainly allow itself to be deformed without offering any more resistance. Let P be Che load causing the deformation.
