The role of the six auxiliary compatibility equations will be discussed when actual elasticity problems are formulated in Chapter 2. We now proceed to investigate the relationship of stress and strain in a three–dimensional, linearly elastic, isotropic body. 15 Stress–strain relationships 31 where E is a constant known as the modulus of elasticity or Young’s modulus. 40) is an expression of Hooke’s law. 41) in which n is a constant termed Poisson’s ratio. For a body subjected to direct stresses sx, sy, and sz, the direct strains are, from Eqs.

Theory of elasticity. 2nd ed. New York: McGraw-Hill; 1951. Wang CT. Applied elasticity. New York: McGraw-Hill; 1953. 1. A structural member supports loads that produce, at a particular point, a direct tensile stress of 80 N/mm2 and a shear stress of 45 N/mm2 on the same plane. Calculate the values and directions of the principal stresses at the point and also the maximum shear stress, stating on which planes this acts. 2. At a point in an elastic material, there are two mutually perpendicular planes, one of which carries a direct tensile stress of 50 N/mm2 and a shear stress of 40 N/mm2, while the other plane is subjected to a direct compressive stress of 35 N/mm2 and a complementary shear stress of 40 N/mm2.

The unknown stresses are then found from the conditions of equilibrium alone and the problem is said to be statically determinate. For example, the uniform stress in the member supporting a tensile load P in Fig. 3 is found by applying one equation of equilibrium and a boundary condition. This system is therefore statically determinate. Statically indeterminate systems require the use of some, if not all, of the other equations involving strain–displacement and stress–strain relationships. However, whether the system be statically determinate or not, stress–strain relationships are necessary to determine deflections.
