Unformatted text preview: The Manhattan Bridge, under construction in 1909, nine months before its opening on December 31, 1909 • Many materials are used to bear and sustain loads.
– • buildings
space shuttle We need to understand…
– … how much force a material will withstand without:
• deflecting too much.
• deforming permanently.
• cracking or breaking. – … how the mechanical behavior changes over time due to:
• high temperature exposure.
• combinations of the above. 2 • What is a “mechanical response”? • If you apply forces to an object it can:
– Move – Rotate – Deform • To eliminate the first two you must apply balanced forces.
– You can measure deflection and distortion of the material under a load
– The actual response depends on the:
• structure and geometry • A material’s response is correlated by:
– stress normalized force
– strain normalized displacement 3 What Parameter Correlates A Material’s Behaviour?
If it requires 2 baby elephants to break the lecture table how many elephants would it take to break two tables joined together? Why and what is the principle?
If a 20 m long bungee cord stretches 6 m when you jump how long will a 30 m cord stretch? • A material’s response is correlated by:
– stress normalized force .
– strain normalized deflection .
4 • Three ways a load may be applied:
– Shear • Engineering stress σ : The instantaneous load applied to a specimen divided by its cross‐sectional area before any deformation
– Expressed in MPa F A0 1MPa 106N/m2 • Engineering Strain ε : The change in gauge length of a specimen in the direction of an applied force divided by its original gauge length
l 0 i l0 l0 *NO UNITS • Common mechanical stress‐
• Specimen is deformed to fracture
• Increasing tensile load is applied uniaxially along the long axis of the specimen
• Circular or rectangular cross section
• Several mechanical properties can be determined 0.505 in Titanium
Click to Play • Similar to tensile tests • Force is compressive and specimen contracts along the direction of stress • Compressive force is negative, yielding a negative stress and strain • Not as common as tensile tests; harder to perform • Used when a material’s behaviour under large and permanent ie. Plastic strain is desired, as in:
– Manufacturing applications
– Brittle in tension Compression test using concrete specimen
click to play • Shear Stress τ : The instantaneous applied shear load divided by the original cross‐
sectional area across which it is applied F A0
• Shear Strain γ : The tangent of the shear angle that results from an applied shear load • Torsion: – A variation of pure shear; specimen is twisted
– Rotational motion is produced about the longitudinal axis of one end of the member relative to the other end.

Tension Shear E G G= Shear Modulus – Expresses the relationship between engineering stress and strain for elastic deformation tension and compression
• Modulus of Elasticity, E Young’s Modulus is the proportionality constant
– Ratio of stress to strain
– Deformation is completely elastic
– Measure of the stiffness of a material • Elastic Deformation: deformation in which stress and strain are proportional linear relationship
– Slope of line is the modulus of elasticity, E
– Nonpermanent; when applied load is released, piece returns to its original shape
– Independent of Time High E stiff material • The elastic modulus:
– varies by 106!
– depends little on alloying.

– Crystalline solids Accomplished by a process called slip motion of dislocations; discussed in Chapter 7
– Amorphous solids and liquids Viscous flow mechanism • Most metals experience at gradual transition from elastic to plastic region • Yielding: The onset of plastic deformation • Yield Strength σy : The stress required to produce a very specific amount of plastic strain; a strain offset of 0.002 is commonly used
“Strength” is used in lieu of “stress”
because strength is a property of the metal, whereas stress is related to the magnitude of the applied load Metals/

A0 At this maximum stress, a small neck begins to form in the specimen, termed “necking”
Beyond Fmax we see tensile instability necking which leads to fracture Fracture • Ductility relates to how much the material plastically deforms before it fractures

BMW Engineers are considering three different materials for this application; an advanced steel with a yield stress of 600 MPa and density of 7.80 g/cm3, an aluminum alloy with a yield stress of 190 MPa and density of 2.70 g/cm3 and a Mg alloy with a yield stress of 125 MPa and density of 1.74 g/cm3.
