MACHINE DESIGN - An 2-6-1 PROBLEM 2-6 Statement: A metal has a strength of 60 kpsi (414 MPa) at its elastic limit and the strain at that point is 0.002. What is the modulus of elasticity? What is the strain energy at the elastic limit? Assume that the test speimen is 0.505-in dia and has a 2-in gage length. Can you define the type of metal based on the given data? Units: ksi 10 3 psi . MPa 10 6 Pa . GPa 10 9 Pa . kN 10 3 newton . Given: Elastic limit: Strength S el 60 ksi . Strain ε el 0.002 S el 414 MPa = Test specimen Diameter d o 0.505 in . Length L o 2.00 in . Solution: See Mathcad file P0206. 1. The modulus of elasticity is the slope of the stress-strain curve, which is a straight line, in the elastic region. Since one end of this line is at the origin, the slope (modulus of elasticity) is
