Week 12: Due Friday 2 December 1. Figure 1 shows the stresses acting on an element of material. Find the three principal stresses σ 1 , 2 , 3 and the absolute maximum shear stress τ max . 12 12 8 8 6 6 17 17 all stress components in ksi. Figure 1 2. The principal stresses at a given point are 1 = 10 MPa, 2 = - 100 MPa. Sketch Mohr’s circle for this state of stress and determine the normal stress on a plane inclined at an angle θ to the principal plane 1. Hence find the range of values of for which the normal stress is tensile. 3. A glass wire of 1 mm diameter is tested in tension and found to fracture at a tensile force of 40 N. A similar unbroken wire is used to suspend a mass of 2 kg from the ceiling. The mass is now subjected to a moment T about the vertical axis, causing the wire to be loaded in torsion as well as tension. Find (i) the value of at which the wire will break and (ii) the angle between the fracture surface and the cross-sectional (horizontal) plane. Would your answer to (i) be different if the wire were made of copper? 1
