Example: Grinding process Mechanical Design Prediction of failure by yielding Case study #3 – pressure vessel A vessel is an element that contains fluid pressure. triaxial stress: (σ1, σ2, σ3) Question: When will it fail? σ1 = σH = pD / 2t σ2 = σA = pD / 4t σ3 = σR = -p / 2 Mechanical Design Difficulty: The designer faces a difficulty in getting from here … to here … material laboratory real world Mechanical Design Difficulty: The designer faces a difficulty in getting from here … to here … Question: How do we predict failure when more than one principal stress is present? Answer: Use a Failure Predictor materi...
