By Christopher Jenkins, Sanjeev Khanna

An Engineering spouse to Mechanics of fabrics is the 1st quantity within the Momentum Press assortment the trendy Engineering partners: A platforms method of the examine of Engineering. In Mechanics of fabrics, we observe the intuitive "systems procedure" to studying, the benefits of that are numerous. the coed first will get a wide review of the total topic instead of the slim piecemeal imaginative and prescient afforded via the conventional "component process" universal to so much engineering texts. Mechanics of fabrics comes with extra positive aspects to enhance pupil studying, together with universal complicated techniques (C3) famous and clarii ed, indication of key ideas, part bar discussions, labored examples, and routines for constructing engineering instinct. The partners are meant as a supplementary source to assist either undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate scholars larger examine and comprehend engineering strategies

Example text

A plate or shell-like structure can also be used as a flexural structure. Whether or not a given structure responds, or can be represented to respond, as a flexural structure depends on the nature of the loading, and on the structure’s boundary conditions. A structural element will be 36 AN ENGINEERING COMPANION TO THE MECHANICS OF MATERIALS a flexural structure if its boundaries and loading are such that an internal bending moment can be developed. Simplifying assumptions are often made in analyzing flexural structures.

Prismatic beam as a one-dimensional structural element. It is convenient to think about the beam as being comprised of longitudinal “fibers”, running the length of the beam and parallel to the long axis (x-axis in the above figure). ) In a rectangular cross-section h high by b wide, the outer fibers would be located on the surfaces ± h/2. Another important fiber is co-located with the neutral axis of the beam. The neutral axis (really, neutral plane) is a locus of material points that have zero stress during flexure and will be described in more detail in Section 4.

Keep in mind that although we have shown a rod with constant, circular cross-section, primarily for convenience and simplicity, a rod may have a non-constant and/or, non-circular cross-section. ii. However, to remain an axial structure, the axis of every crosssection, which is the line passing perpendicularly through the centroid of that cross-section, must remain co-linear. iii. Structures with constant cross-sectional area, or more generally constant second moment of area, are called prismatic structures.
