Short Question Answers on bending Q Difference between a shaft and a beam. Shaft is a rotating member and is always circular. It is always under a torque. In addition it may have bending moment and axial thrust. It is used in all the Machines having rotary motion. Beam is a stationary member. Its […]
S O M– Short Interview Question Answers on Introduction to Strength of Materials, Stress, Types of Stresses, Tensile Stress, Compressive Stress, Shear Stress and Thermal Stress Introduction to Strength of Materials This subject tells which materials are strong in tension/compression/bending/torsion/buckling loads. Hence depending upon the application, one can select the material for that application. Application includes […]
TYPES OF MODULUS, Young’s Modulus, Shear Modulus, Bulk Modulus, Relation between Elastic Constants, Simple Strain, Types of strains and Units of Strains These are of three types. It is the ratio of stress to strain. Young’s modulus = E = tensile stress/ tensile strain Young’s modulus = E = compressive stress/ compressive strain Shear modulus = G […]
SIMPLE STRESSES Stress: It is the internal resistance of a material against the external force applied. Mathematically stress = force/area =N/mm2. Simple stress is due to only one type of load applied. Simple tensile stress when only tensile load is applied. Tensile load is perpendicular to the area and coming out of the area (like […]
BENDING STRESSES & STRAINS IN COMPOSITE BEAMS DEFINITION OF A COMPOSITE BEAM A beam of two or more materials is a composite beam. STRESSES AND STRAINS IN COMPOSITE BEAMS Derivation of bending equation assumes the material is homogeneous and isotropic. A composite beam cannot satisfy this assumption. Therefore, a composite beam is converted into a […]
