QUESTION: 1

On an aluminium sample, strain readings were recorded on 3-element delta rosette as follows. ε_{0°} = −100 μs, ε_{120°} = −500 μs and ε_{60°} = +600 μs Then the maximum tensile strain is __________ μs.

(A) 589

(B) 600

Solution:
ε_{0} = ε_{xx} = −100 μs ⋯ ①

ε_{120°} = −500 μs =

−500 = −25 + 0.75 ε_{yy} − 0.433 γ_{xy}

or − 475 = 0.75 ε_{xy} − 0.433 γ_{xy} ⋯ ②

ε_{60°} = 600 =

= 25 + 0.75 ε_{yy} + 0.433 γ_{xy}

575 = 0.75 ε_{yy} + 0.433 γ_{xy} ⋯③

−475 = 0.75 ε_{yy} − 0.433 γ_{xy} ⋯④

100 = 1.5 ε_{yy}

or ε_{yy} = +66.67 μs

Putting the values in equation ③

575 = 0.75 × 66.67 + 0.433 γ_{xy} = 50 + 0.433 γ_{xy}

γ_{xy} = 1212.5 μs

Now = −16.665 μs

= −83.33 μs

=

= √(−83.33)^{2} + (606.25)^{2}

√6943.9 + 367539 = 611.95 μs

Principal strains ε_{p1} = −16.665 + 611.95 = +595.285 μs

ε_{p2} = −16.665 − 611.95 = −628.615 μs
