Civil - Mechanics Of Solids - Stress, Strain And Deformation Of Solids

*STRESS,
STRAIN AND DEFORMATION OF SOLIDS*

*1. What is strength of Material?*

*When an external force acts on a body, it
undergoes deformation. At the same time the body resists deformation. This
resistance by which materials of the body opposes the deformation is known as
strength of material.*

*2. What is Rigid body?*

*A rigid body consists of innumerable particles. If
the distance between any two or its particles remains constant, it is known as
solid body.*

*3. What is deformable solids?*

*A body which undergoes
deformation due to application of external forces.*

*4. Define stiffness.*

*The stiffness may be
defined as an ability of a material to with stand high load without major
deformation.*

*5. What
is stability? Explain*

*It is the over all property of a member made out a
material to maintain the overall equilibrium preventing complete collapse.*

*6. **What are
the types of stress? *

*i. **Tensile
stress *

*12. What
is simple stress?*

*When a body is subjected to an external force in
one direction only, the stress developed in the body is called simple stress.*

*13. What
is Compound stress?*

*When a body is subjected to an external force more
than one direction only, the stress developed in the body is called Compound
stress.*

*14.

Tensile strain*

*ii).
Compressive strain iii). Shear strain*

*17.
Define factor of safety.*

*It is the ratio of
ultimate tensile stress to the permissible stress.*

*18. Define lateral strain.*

*A direct stress is always accompanied by a strain
its own direction and the opposite kinds of strain in every direction at right
angles to it. Such a strain is known as secondary strain or lateral strain.*

*19. What
is meant by elastic limit?*

*Whenever a system of external forces, causing
deformation of a body, is removed the body springs back to its original
position. For a given section, there is always a limiting value of force, up to
and within which, the deformation entirely disappears on the removal of the
force. The intensity of stress, corresponding to the limiting force is called
elastic limit.*

*20. What
are the types of elastic constants?*

*There are three types of elastic
constants*

*They are, a) Young's
Modulus (E), b) Bulk Modulus (K) and c) Shear Modulus(C)*

*21.
Define Bulk modulus (K)*

*The ratio of direct stress to the corresponding
volumetric strain is constant within its elastic limit. The ratio is known as
Bulk modulus.*

*Bulk modulus (K) = Direct
stress/Volumetric strain*

*22.

*It is ratio of the lateral strain
and longitudinal strain.*

*23.

*It is ratio of the change in
volume and original volume.*

*24.
State clearly the Hooke's **law.*

*Hooke's law states, 'Whenever a material
is loaded within its elastic limit, the stress induced is directly proportional
to strain'. It holds good equally for tension and compression.*

*q=Shearing stress*

*e _{s} =Shear strain*

*27.**What is

of a composite bar? *

*A composite member is composed of two or more
different materials, joined together in such a way that the system is elongated
or compressed as a single unit. In such a case, the following two governing
principles are to be followed.*

*i) Change on length in the bar (1) = Change on
length in bar (2) P _{1}L_{1}/A_{1} E_{1} = P_{2}L_{2}
/A_{2} E_{2}*

*ii) Total load P = load carried by bar (1) +load
carried by bar (2) P = P _{1+} P_{2}*

*Stress
induced in bar (1) = P _{1}/ A_{1} Stress induced in bar (2) = P_{2}/
A_{2}*

*E= 2C (1+1/m)*

*

*N/mm ^{2}

*Modulus of rigidity C =

*4.8 x 10 ^{4} = 1.2x10^{5} m/2[m+1]*

*Poisson's 1/m =
0.25*

*Bulk modulus K = mE/3[m-2]*

*31.
**Define Thermal stress and strain.
*

*If the temperature of a body is lowered or raised
its dimensions will decrease or increase correspondingly. If the changes are
checked, the stress thus developed in the body is called Thermal stress or
temperature stress. And corresponding strain is known as Thermal stress or
temperature stress.*

*32. Define strain energy.*

*The energy absorbed in a body,
when strained within its elastic limit is known as strain energy. It is also
known as resilience.*

*The maximum strain energy that

*According to this theory, the elastic failure
occurs when energy per unit volume in a strained material reaches the value of
the strain energy per unit volume at the elastic limit point in the simple
tension test. According to this theory, the maximum energy which a body can
store without deforming plastically is constant for that material irrespective
of the manner of loading.*
