    Middle third rule- Middle quarter rule

    Middle third rule- Middle quarter rule In such cases, maximum and minimum stresses will co-exist in the outermost fibers. Maximum stress σmax = M/Z + P/A= Maximum compressive Minimum stress σmin = M/Z – P/A+ can be compressive, zero or tensile depending upon the relative magnitude of M/Z and P/A Case 1 If M/Z < P/A, […]

    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) […]
