1 9 MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF SOLIDS Deforming force Deforming force is the force which changes the shape or size of a body. Restoring force Restoring force is the internal force developed inside the body which brings the body back to original shape and size when a deforming force acts on it. Elasticity It is the property of a body by virtue of which it tends to regain its original shape and size when deforming force is removed. Difference between perfectly elastic bodies and plastic bodies If a body immediately regains its original shape and size when the applied force is removed, it is perfectly elastic. eg: quartz If a body does not show any tendency to regain its original shape and size when the applied force is removed, it is a plastic body. eg: putty, mud etc. Stress It is the restoring force acting per unit area. Stress. Its unit is Strain Strain Strain has no unit. Longitudinal stress or linear stress It is the stress when there is change in length. Tensile stress causes increase in length. Compressive stress causes decrease in length. Normal stress or hydraulic stress It is the stress when there is change in volume. Shearing stress or tangential stress Shearing stress or tangential stress is the stress when there is change in shape of the body. Linear strain Linear strain is the ratio of change in length to the original length. Volume strain Volume strain is the ratio of change in the volume to the original volume. The strain produced by hydraulic stress is called volume strain. Shearing strain Shearing strain indicates the angle through which deformation take place. Unique Learning Centre, Ulloor, Tvpm.

Hooke s law Area of cross section of the rope where W is weight attached and is the yield strength (For steel, yield strength ) (Here W mg). Ideas to be kept during the construction of a beam for building For small deformations, the stress is directly proportional to the strain. Stress strain or the modulus of elasticity. constant. This constant is called Modulus of elasticity There are three moduli of elasticity. They are Young s modulus, Bulk modulus and Shear modulus (rigidity modulus). Unit of modulus of elasticity: Young s modulus It is the ratio of linear stress to linear strain. Young s modulus Bulk modulus It is the ratio of normal stress to volume strain. Bulk modulus Bulk modulus Shear modulus Shear modulus Shear modulus Young s modulus of the material of a wire Young s modulus where M is the mass attached to wire, is the length of wire, s its radius and is the extension in the wire. Compressibility Reciprocal of bulk modulus is called compressibility. The sag ( ) produced in the beam when weight is placed over it, where W is the weight, is the length of the beam, b is the breadth of the beam, d is the depth of the beam and Y is the young s modulus of the material of the beam. Cross sectional shape is ideal for load bearing bars This shape provides maximum load bearing surface. As the depth of it is more, the sag produced in it will be less. As it requires less material, cost can be reduced. Weight of beam is minimum as the material required is minimum. At the same time it provides maximum strength. The maximum height of a mountain on the earth s surface is 10km The stress per area must be less than elastic limit of the rocks at the base of the mountain. The elastic limit of rock is h g Stress-strain graph for a metal In the first section, the stress and strain are proportion up to a limit called proportional limit (point A in figure).

3 The body behaves as elastic. In the section from A to B the stress and the strain are not in direct proportion. But if force is removed, the body returns to its original position. The point B is called elastic limit or yield point. The corresponding stress is called yield strength. Poisson s Ratio If the length of a wire changes from to and diameter changes from to, Poisson s ratio / / Poisson s ratio has no unit or dimension... Elastic fatigue When a material is subjected to repeated stresses over a long period,it loses its strength. This is known as elastic fatigue. Elastic strain energy From B onwards if stress is increased, the strain increases much up to the point D. When stress is removed from B to D ( at C ) the body will not regain its original shape and size. It attains permanent set. The deformation is called plastic deformation. The point D is called ultimate yield point. Beyond it additional strain is produced even for decreased stress and the body breaks at the point E called fracture point (breaking point). If D and E are close, the material is brittle. If they are far, it is ductile. Substances which can be extended to produce large values of strain are called elastomers. eg: rubber, elastic tissue of aorta etc. The stress- strain graph for the elastic tissue of aorta Here the elastic region is large. But it does not obey Hooke s law. For causing deformation on a body, work has to be done. This work is stored in the form of elastic strain Expression for elastic strain energy per unit volume of a wire Elastic potential energy stored in the wire (Strain energy) stressstrainvolume Relation among different elastic constants: Y 3B (1-2) Y 2 (1+ ) + ratio, Cantilever where Y Young s modulus, Poisson s B bulk modulus, shear modulus. A beam clamped at one end and loaded at free end is called cantilever. Depression at the free end of a cantilever where w load, l length of the cantilever, Y Young s modulus of elasticity, and geometrical moment of inertia.
