Transcript of Stress Transformation & Principal Stresses

ME 310 - Mechanics of Materials II Stress Transformation and
Principal Stresses -
28th Oct - 11th Nov 2013

Principal Stresses and maximum shear stresss
How many different values can stress have at a point - the plane stress case
Combined Stresses Design examples
Stress invariants and Design
Graphical Method of Stress transformation - The Mohr Circle
The transformation equations for plane stress
Why stress transformation !
Stress components at a point for a given loading dependent on orientation of co-ordinate system.
An infinite number of stress components can be defined depending on the orientation of co-ordinate system used.
These components are not arbitrary and can be expressed as function of angle from any fixed set of reference co-ordinate orientation.
For design purpose we need to find out where these components will attain their maximum or minimum values.
Stress value is a function of coordinate system orientation
