QUESTION: 10

Which of the following theories of failure is represented by square shape elastic boundary?

Solution:

Maximum principal stress theory QUESTION: 11

Principal stresses at a point in an elastic material are 100 MPa tensile 5 and 50 MPa tensile. What is the factor of safety against failure based on maximum shear strain energy theory? The elastic limit in simple tension is 173.2 MPa and Poisson’s ratio 0.3.

Solution:

1 - σ2)2 + (σ2 - σ3)2 + (σ3 - σ1)2 =  262
Here, σ1 = 100 MPa, σ2 = 50 MPa, σ3 = 0
∴ (100 - 50)2 + 502 + 1002 = 262
∴ σ2 = 7500 or σ = 86.6 MPa

QUESTION: 18

The Mohr’s circle of plane stress for a point in a body is shown. The design is to be done on the basis of the maximum shear stress theory for yielding. Then, yielding will just begin if the designer chooses a ductile material whose yield strength is Solution:

From maximum shear stress theory  σyp = -90 MPa

QUESTION: 19

As per the elastic theory of design, the factor of safety is the ratio of

Solution:

Usually ratio of ultimate stress to working stress is called factor of safety. In elastic theory of design the material factor of safety is only considered and the ratio of yield stress to working stress is called factor of safety.

QUESTION: 20

All the failure theories give nearly the same result

Solution:

When one of the principal stresses at a point is large in comparison to the other, the situation resembles uniaxial tension test. Therefore all theories give nearly same result.
