MAHARASHTRA STATE BOARD OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION
Strength of Mateirals (9024)
IMPORTANCE OF THE SUBJECT
subject of the
subjects like Theory Of Machines, Machine Design. Study
of the subject is useful to understand various actions like tension, compression, shear, bending. It is essential
for designing of various machine components subjected to various actions and heat treatment, so that
components should be able to bear the ultimate load without failure during the service period.
In Strength of Materials laboratory testing of materials under tension, compression, shear, bending in part
will be done and failure patterns will be observed.
Mechanical properties like ductility, hardness, toughness, elongation, brittleness will be understood and
their variation with respect to strength of the material will be observed.
Concept to be developed through this laboratory work- Stress, strain, elasticity, plasticity, hardness, toughness,
machinability, ductility, modulus of elasticity, modulus of rigidity, bulk modulus, principal stress & strain,
strain energy, shear force, bending moment, moment of inertia.
