Mechanics of Materials
• Any force deforms a load
• Mechanics of Materials calculates:
– Deformation
– Internal forces
These calculations let you know if your object will
break, and where it will break
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is often more accurate,
but you should still know the basic equations

Normal Stress
• Externally, we look at:
– Forces
– Displacements
• Internally, we look at
– Normalized Forces
– Normalized Displacements

Conventions
• Tension
– Object becomes longer
– Positive
• Compression
– Object becomes
shorter
– Negative
• Normal stress / strain
– stress acts
perpendicular to
surface

Example
• A short post constructed from a hollow circular tube
of aluminum supports a compressive load of 54 N.
The inner and outer diameters are:
• D1=3.6 cm
• D2 = 5 cm
• Length = 50 cm
• The post shortens .022 cm

Stress Strain Diagram
• P: Proportional Limit
• OP: Stress is linear to Strain
• OE: Object is Elastic. If you remove
force, it will return to original shape• Y: Yield point. Object will deform
without any added load• U: Ultimate Stress (Ultimate strength)
•Slope of OP is called Modulus of
Elasticity, or Young’s Modulus

Poisson’s Ratio
• Pulling a bar in one direction:
– Makes it longer in that direction
– Shorter in transverse direction

ν

Poisson’s ratio
ν= 0.5 : Incompressible (rubber)
ν = 0.4 – 0.45: Many biological materials
ν = 0.25 – 0.35: Metals
ν = 0.1: Concrete
ν = 0: Cork

Example:
A steel pipe has:
• length L = 40 cm
• OD = 6 cm
• ID = 4.5 cm.
• It is compressed by force F=100 N.
• The material has modulus of
elasticity E = 70 kPa
• Poisson’s ratio ν=0.30
• Determine the following:
– Shortening: δ
– Lateral strain: ε’
– New OD
– New ID

Free Body Diagram Observations
1) ΣF: Shear stress on opposite faces of an element
are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction
2) ΣM:Shear stresses on adjacent faces are equal in
magnitude. Both forces point toward, or both faces
point away, from the line of intersection of the
faces.

Shear Strain
• Shear stresses do not change length of sides
• Shear stress change shape of object
• Shear Strain: Angular deformation γ (gamma)

Shear Conventions
• Shear Stress:
– Positive Face: Positive Shear stress points in positive
direction
– Negative Face: Positive Shear stress points in
negative direction
• Shear Strain:
– Positive if angle between 2 positive faces is reduced
– Positive if angle between 2 negative faces is reduced

thickness t=12 mm. Angle θ=40°. A pin through the strut
transmits the force to 2 gussets G welded to base plate B. Four
anchor bolts fasten the base plate to the deck.D

a) bearing stress between strut and pin
b) shear stress in pin
c) bearing stres between pin
and gussets
d) bearing stress between
anchor bolts and base plate
e) shear stress in anchor bolts

Typical Exam question
A punch for making holes in steel plates is shown below.
The punch has diameter d = 0.75 in. It is used to punch a
hole in a ¼inch plate. If a force P = 28,000 lb is required
to create the hole, what is the average shear stress in
the plate and the average compressive stress in the
punch?
Hint (shear area is tricky!)
