Problem set: 1 Mechanics of Composite Materials Data : / / 1- A displacement field in a body is given by u = 10 –5 (x 2 + 6y + 7xy) v = 10 –5 (yz) w = 10 –5 (xy + yz 2 ) Find the state of strain at (x,y,z) = (1,2,3). 2- Consider a bar of cross-section A and length L. A uniform tensile load P is applied to the two ends of the rod; find the state of stress and strain, and strain energy per unit volume of the body. Assume that the rod is made of an orthotropic material. 3-For a graphite/epoxy unidirectional lamina, find the following: 1. Compliance matrix 2. Minor Poisson’s ratio 3. Reduced stiffness matrix 4.
