EXAMPLE 1

The stress–strain diagram for an aluminum alloy that is used for making aircraft parts is shown in Fig. 3–19. If a specimen of this material is stressed to 600 MPa, determine the permanent strain that remains in the specimen when the load is released. Also, find the modulus of resilience both before and after the load application.

EXAMPLE 1 (cont)

Solution

• When the specimen is subjected to the load, the strain is approximately 0.023 mm/mm. • The slope of line OA is the modulus of elasticity,

EXAMPLE 2

A bar made of A-36 steel has the dimensions shown in Fig. 3–22. If an axial force of P = 80 kN is applied to the bar, determine the change in its length and the change in the dimensions of its cross section after applying the load. The material behaves elastically.

EXAMPLE 2 (cont)

Solution

• The normal stress in the bar is

P 80103 z 16.0106 Pa A 0.10.05 • From the table for A-36 steel, Est = 200 GPa
