    Middle -third rule- Middle-quarter rule: Brittle materials- eccentric loading

    Middle -third rule- Middle-quarter rule: Brittle materials – eccentric loading Keywords: Middle -third rule and Middle-quarter rule- eccentricity-rectangular-circular sections   Abstract There are numerous applications where combined bending and axial loading  is found. For example: industrial chimney, Dam, All buildings and structures, all poles and trees. In all these applications, self weight is the axial compression load […]

    mcqs: Bending and axial loading combined 

      mcqs: Bending and axial loading combined  Keywords: Maximum stress-minimum stress-locations-eccentricity-kernel area Abstract Bending and axial loading is equivalent to eccentric loading. It causes additional stresses in the material. Due to this, though the strength of the material is fixed but its load carrying capacity is decreases. Thus it can be said that material strength […]

    Factor of Safety and Eccentric Loading

    FACTOR OF SAFETY AND ECCENTRIC LOADING Need of the factor of safety is to account for uncertainties in the actual situaion and the assumed situation. Because of many uncertainties, factor of safety is called FACTOR OF IGNORANCE. (i) Uncertainty about the homogeneous nature of the material (ii) Uncertainty about the isotropic nature of the material (iii) […]
