Mechanical Design Primer Slide 4 Free Body Diagram ∑ ∑ = = M F D C m o t o r Free body of shaft ¾ The isolated subsystem, together with all forces and moments due to external effects and the reactions with the main system is known as the free-body diagram . Mechanical Design Primer Slide 5 Free Body Diagram (FBD) • Greatly simplify the analysis of complex structures by isolating each part. • Once complete the analysis, synthesize this knowledge to yield information about the total system. Mechanical Design Primer Slide 6 FBD • Advantages: – Establish the directions of reference axes. – Simplifies your thinking (place to store thoughts). – Means of communication of thoughts. – Brings out points that might not be intuitive. – Planning logical attack. – Recording progress. – Allows others to follow your reasoning.

For instance, a large tree trunk can carry more weight than a thin steel wire. That does not mean that wood is stronger than steel. • Need a new metric by which we can measure the forces that can be sustained by any material of any size without failing. That metric is the mechanical stress . Mechanical Design Primer Slide 10 Where did this idea originate from? • The definition of stress originates from two observations of the behavior of a one- dimensional body subject to uniaxial loading: – When a wire is pulled it stretches and up to a certain point the stretch ratio is proportional to the force divided by the cross-sectional area of the wire. Stress is defined as σ = F/A – Failure occurs when the load exceeds a critical value for the material. The tensile strength (or stress) times the cross section of the material.
