Olek, CE 231,Fall 2004 Displacement and Deformation Displacement – Movement of a point w.r.t a reference system Can be caused by translation or rotation Deformation - Change in the shape / size of a body related to displacements Deformation is not uniform throughout the body, generally Deformation includes changes in both lengths and angles Curtsey of N.

Olek, CE 231,Fall 2004 Normal Engineering Strain F F F F L 0 L 0 + Δ L = L 0 0 0 L L L L L = - = ε Average normal strain If the deformation is not uniform, we must define strain at a point
Olek, CE 231,Fall 2004 Strain is Dimensionless Strain is a dimensionless quantity It is a ratio of two lengths But the common practice is to state the strain in terms of length/length Engineering Strains are usually very small – so it is common practice to express strains as μm / m (called microstrain) 1μm = 10 -6 m Strain can also be expressed as a percent (500 μm/m = 500 x 10 -6 m/m = 500 x 10 -6 /100 = 0.05%) Curtsey of N.
