Introduction to Elasticity Elasticity - Study of strain - displacement relations, equilibrium equations, and constitutive equations for elastic (not rigid, not plastic) structures. Displacement is the change of position during deformation. p(x , y , z) p’(x’ , y’ , z’) x’ = x + u or u = x’ – x y’ = y + v or v = y’ – y z’ = z + w or w = z’ – z Displacement U = ui + vj + wk z y x r r’ p p’ AE/ME350 Jha Elasticity-1

Shear Strains Shear strains in y-z plane and x-z plane are given by General deformation can be described by three normal strains and three shear strains See example 2.1 in Text (Sun) z u x w zx xz   z v y w yz zy   zz yy xx , , xz yz xy , , AE/ME350 Jha Elasticity-4
Rigid Body Motion Translation if every point has the same displacement along X- axis (or Y-axis or Z-axis) Another rigid body motion is the rigid body rotation, and is represented in the X-Y plane by displacements, Rigid body motion (translation or rotation) does not generate any strain constant o uu ;; 0 uy v x w  AE/ME350 Jha Elasticity-5
