    Theories of Elastic Failures

    THEORIES OF ELASTIC FAILURES There are five well known theories of elastic failures. These theories explain material under simple or complex loaded condition is elastic in many ways and does not meet a failure but undergoes a failure in one of the following five ways. The material is safe in four remaining ways. For example, […]
