Problem 3 : Matrix A given by [ ]= A 8442 and the eigen values of [ A ] are: 0 and 10. Determine if it is: (a) positive-definite; or (b) Positive semi definite; or (c) Negative definite. Solution Since the eigne values are greater than or equal to zero ( ≥ ) λ 0 , matrix A is positive semi definite. Illustration The quadratic form = f xy8442xy can be expanded as = + f 22x y2 . Then one can see f =0 for all 2 x + y =0 or y =-2 x . Thus, f =0 for combinations other than x = y =0. However, f >0 is always satisfied, because it is a perfect square. Problem 1 : Derive the (cubic) characteristic equation for determining the principal stresses of the stress matrix shown below. Do NOT solve the equation. Solution Calculate the invariants: = , = + + =

(i) Write the three linear equations you will use to determine the corresponding principal direction. (ii) Solve the above equations to determine the principal direction. If there are multiple principal directions for n =5, then show them in a parametric form.
