Chapter 6 - 1 ISSUES TO ADDRESS. .. Stress and strain : What are they and why are they used instead of load and deformation? Elastic behavior: When loads are small, how much deformation occurs? What materials deform least? Plastic behavior: At what point does permanent deformation occur? What materials are most resistant to permanent deformation? Toughness and ductility : What are they and how do we measure them? Chapter 6: Mechanical Properties

Chapter 6 - 2 Why do we care about mechanical properties of materials? An oil barge fractured in a brittle manner by crack propagation around its girth

Chapter 6 - 3 Why care? Structural failure of a ladder Failure can result from poor design – choice of material versus load Structural failure - is driven by repeat loading, which is a necessary requirement of a ladder, a drive shaft on an automobile, and the wing on an airplane.
