A force F = bhσy /2 is applied to the other end. σy is the yield strength. Now a bending moment is applied as shown in the ﬁgure. Determine the magnitude of the moment M at which the the beam fails. Assume idealized material law: elastic perfect plastic. M F L h b 2. The stress tensor can be written as the sum of a deviatoric stress tensor and a dilation stress tensor and the strain can be written as the sum of volumetric strain and deviatoric strain as follows: ⎡ ⎤⎡ ⎤⎡ ⎤ σ1 0 0 S1 0 0 −P 0 0 ⎣ 0 σ2 0 ⎦ = ⎣ 0 S2 0 ⎦ + ⎣ 0 −P 0 ⎦ 0 0 σ3 0 0 S3 0 0 −P ⎡ ⎤ ⎡� ⎤⎡ ⎤ �1 0 0 �1 0 0 �v /3 0 0 ⎣ 0 �2 0 ⎦ = ⎣ 0 ��2 0 ⎦ + ⎣ 0 �v /3 0 ⎦ 0 0 �3 0 0 ��3 0 0 �v /3 Where P = −(σ1 + σ2 + σ3 )/3 is the hydrostatic pressure and �v = �1 + �2 + �3 is the volumetric strain. Please show that the distortion energy UD is equal to: 3 1� � UD = Si �i 2 i=1 3. Consider several ceramic fuel materials with properties listed in the table below: Property Thermal conductivity average (W/mo C ) Melting point (o C ) Linear coefﬁcient of expansion (/o C ) Fracture strength (MPa) 1 UO2 3.6 2800 10.1E-6 110 UC 23 2390 11.1E-6 60 UN 21 2800 9.4E-6 – (a) Calculate the theoretical maximum linear heat generation rate. (b) Compare the the minimum linear heat generation rates at which fracture would occur for UO2 and UC. 2 ...
