Applications of Strength of Materials
- To design a structure. In design of a structure the engineer must consider:
- Type of Material
Analysis of internal forces consists of the following procedure.... [Read More]
|Some Technical terms||Mechanics of Solids|
It is the combination of physical, mathematical, and computer laws and techniques to predict the behavior of solid materials that are subjected to mechanical or thermal loadings. It is the branch of mechanics that deals with the behavior of solid matter under external actions. The external actions may be: ... [Read More]
|Kern of a section||Intermediate columns|
|Kern: The portion or section of a body where vertical compressive load if applied will not cause any tension in the member [Read More]||Columns: A compression member is said to ba column if its unsupported length is more than 10 times its least laterl dimension.
Intermediate columns are those which fail by crushing or by buckling.
|Shear flow, shear center & Shape factor||Eccentrically loaded columns|
|Shear flow: The longitudinal force per unit length transmitted across the section of a body is known as shear flow
Shear centre: A point within or outside a member (beam) such that if any transverse load is applied at this point it will cause bending without twisting... [Read More]

|Principle planes: The planes at which maximum and minimum stresses occur ... [Read More]|
