Principal Stress - Strain and Theories of Failure
ANALYSIS OF PRINCIPAL STRESSES

Principal stresses are direct normal stresses acting on mutually perpendicular planes on which shear stresses are zero. The planes which carry zero shear stresses are known as principal planes. ·

Case-1 : If principal stresses acting on two mutually perpendicular planes are σ1 and σ2 then, normal and shear stresses on a plane n – n which is inclined at an angle θ with the plane of σ1 are given by

Case-2 : If σx and σy are normal stresses and txy is shear stress acting on the mutually perpendicular planes then the normal and shear stresses on any plane n-n inclined at an angle θ with the plane of σx are given by

Special case-1 : If θ becomes such that ζx'y' on this plane becomes zero then this plane will be known as principal plane and the angle of principal plane is given by

The magnitude of principal stresses σ1 and σ2 are given by

σor σ2 = (σxy)/2 ± √[(σxy/2)22]

Special case-2 : The plane of maximum shear stress lies at 45° to the plane of principal stress and magnitude of ζmax is given by

Note that planes of ζmax carry equal and alike normal stresses. The normal stress on plane of  ζmax is given by

Therefore resultant stress on the plane of Тmax is

The angle of obliquity of σr with the direction of σn is given by

Special case-3 : In case of pure shear element, the principal stresses act at 45° to the plane of pure shear stress.

σ1 = +  ζxy
σ= – ζxy ·

• Properties of Mohr’s Circle for Stress :
•  Mohr’s circle is the locus on normal and shear stresses on an element with the changing angle of plane in 2 dimensional case.

The radius of Mohr’s circle is equal to maximum shear stress.

• The centre of circle always lies on s axis and its co-ordinates are (σn, 0)

Note : Sum of normal stresses on two mutually perpendicular planes remain constant i.e.σ1 + σ2 = σ+ σy = constant

• In case of pure shear element σ1 = + ζ and σ2 = – ζ therefore centre of the circle coincides with the origin,

• In case of an element inside the static fluid, ζ = 0 because principal stresses are equal and alike therefor Mohr’s circle reduces into a point

COMBINED BENDING & TORSION
Let a shaft of diameter ‘d’ be subjected to bending moment ‘M’ and a twisting moment ‘T’ at a section. At any point in the section at radius ‘r’ and at a distance y from the neutral axis, the bending stress is given by

and shear stress is given by

Where I = Moment of inertia about its NA and Ip = Polar moment of Inertia.

•  The location of the principal planes through the point is given by tan

•  The principal stress es are given by

• The maximum shear stress is given by

• The position of principal planes is given by

EQUIVALENT BENDING MOMENT & EQUIVALENT TORQUE

• Let ‘Me’ be the equivalent bending moment which acts alone producing the maximum tensi l e stress equal to σ1, as produced by M and T.

Therefore

• Let ‘Te’ be the equivalent torque, which acts alone producing the same maximum shearing stress tmax as produced by M and T.

ANALYSIS OF PRINCIPAL STRAINS

•  Case-1 : If ε1 and ε2 are principal strains in two mutual perpendicular directions in plane stress problem then principal stresses are given by

• If ε1 and ε2 are principal strains in x and y directions respectively, then normal and shear strain in any other direction x' are given by

• If εx, εy and φxy are normal and shear strain in x – y plane the normal and shear strain in x' – y' plane are given by

Special case : If φx'y' = 0 then magnitude of principal strains and their plane are given by

• · Properties of Mohr’s circle for strain

The radius of Mohr’s circle is half of maximum shear strain i.e.

Therefore Diameter of Mohr’s circle,

σ = (P/A)
When load is applied suddenly, then the normal stress ‘σ’ due to load P is given by
σ = (2P/A)

Hence, maximum stress intensity due to suddenly applied load is twice the stress intensity produced by the load of the same magnitude applied gradually.

THEORIES OF ELASTIC FAILURE

• Function of theories of elastic failure is to predict the behaviour of materials in simple tensile test when elastic failure will occur under any condition of applied stress.
• Maximum principal stress theory (Rankine) This assumes that max. principal stress in the complex system reaches the elastic limit stress in simple tension and failure occurs when σ1 = σy for tension Failure can occur in compression when least principal stress (σ3) reaches the elastic limit stress in compression i.e. σ3 = σy  for compression
• It is well suited for brittle materials.

Failure envelope occurs when
(a) σ1 or σ2 = σyt  or  σyc
(ii) σ3 = 0

• Max shear stress theory (Guest - Tresca) This assumes that max shear stress in the  complex stress system becomes equal to that at the yield point in simple tensile test.

• This theory holds good for ductile materials. For like stresses in Ist and IIIrd quadrant σ1 = σy or σ2 = σy

• For unlike stresses in IInd or IVth quadrant

Note : Aluminium alloys & certain steels are not governed by the Guest theory.

• Max principal strain theory (Saint Venant) This assumes that failure occurs when max. strain in the complex stress system equals that at the yield point in the tensile test (σ1 – µσ2 – µσ3) = σy
Failure should occur at higher load because the Poisson's ratio reduces the effect in perpendicular directions

RHOMBUS

•  Maximum strain energy theory (Haigue)or Total strain Energy Theory : -This assumes that failure occur when total strain energy in the complex system is equal to that at the yield point in tensile test.

It is fairly good for ductile materials.

ELLIPSE

•  Maximum shear strain energy theory or distortion energy theory (Mises-Henky Theory).

The properties are similar in tension and compression

ELLIPSE

•  Failure of most ductile materials is governed by the distortion energy criterion or Von mises theory.
σ1 = σ2 = σ3; cylinder
σ= σ2 and σ3 = 0; ellipse ·

• Factor of safety =  Tensile strength / Allowable working stress

## FAQs on Principal Stress-Strain & Theories of Failure - Civil Engineering SSC JE (Technical) - Civil Engineering (CE)

 1. What is the difference between stress and strain?
Ans. Stress and strain are related to the deformation of a material under the application of external forces. Stress is the force per unit area acting on a material, while strain is the measure of the deformation that occurs in the material as a result of stress. In simple terms, stress is the cause and strain is the effect.
 2. How are principal stresses calculated?
Ans. Principal stresses are calculated by solving the equations of equilibrium for a given material under applied forces. These equations involve the stress components acting on different planes. By finding the roots of a quadratic equation, the principal stresses can be determined. The principal stresses give information about the maximum and minimum stress values experienced by a material in different directions.
 3. What are the theories of failure in materials?
Ans. The theories of failure are analytical approaches used to predict the failure of materials under different loading conditions. Some commonly used theories include the maximum normal stress theory, maximum shear stress theory, and the distortion energy theory. These theories provide criteria to determine when a material will fail based on the stress components acting on it.
 4. How do the theories of failure help in material design?
Ans. The theories of failure help in material design by providing guidelines for selecting appropriate materials based on the expected loading conditions. By understanding the failure criteria, engineers can ensure that the material used can withstand the applied stresses without experiencing failure. This helps in designing safer and more efficient structures or components.
 5. What are the limitations of the theories of failure?
Ans. The theories of failure have certain limitations. One limitation is that they are based on assumptions that may not always hold true in real-world scenarios. Additionally, some theories may not accurately predict the failure of materials that exhibit complex behavior, such as non-linear stress-strain relationships. Therefore, it is important to consider other factors and perform experimental testing to validate the predictions made by the theories of failure.
