QUESTION: 1

### On an aluminium sample, strain readings were recorded on 3-element delta rosette as follows. ε0° = −100 μs, ε120° = −500 μs and ε60° = +600 μs Then the maximum tensile strain is __________ μs.(A) 589(B) 600

Solution: ε0 = εxx = −100 μs ⋯ ①

ε120° = −500 μs =

−500 = −25 + 0.75 εyy − 0.433 γxy

or − 475 = 0.75 εxy − 0.433 γxy ⋯ ②

ε60° = 600 =

= 25 + 0.75 εyy + 0.433 γxy

575 = 0.75 εyy + 0.433 γxy ⋯③

−475 = 0.75 εyy − 0.433 γxy ⋯④

100 = 1.5 εyy

or εyy = +66.67 μs

Putting the values in equation ③

575 = 0.75 × 66.67 + 0.433 γxy = 50 + 0.433 γxy

γxy = 1212.5 μs

Now = −16.665 μs

= −83.33 μs

=

= √(−83.33)2 + (606.25)2

√6943.9 + 367539 = 611.95 μs

Principal strains εp1 = −16.665 + 611.95 = +595.285 μs

εp2 = −16.665 − 611.95 = −628.615 μs
