Mechanics of Anisotropic Materials

The ebook is targeted on constitutive description of mechanical behaviour of engineering fabrics: either traditional (polycrystalline homogeneous isotropic or anisotropic metal fabrics) and non-conventional (heterogeneous multicomponent anisotropic composite materials). potent fabric homes on the macro-level rely on either the fabric microstructure (originally isotropic or anisotropic) in addition to dissipative phenomena happened on fabrication and consecutive loading section (hardening) leading to irreversible microstructure adjustments (acquired anisotropy).

These direction cosines define the plane on which the resultant stress is wholly normal. 18) is a set of homogeneous equations. The trivial solution is nx = ny = nz = 0. e. 20) The three roots of the cubic equation can be designated as s1, s2 and s3. It will be shown subsequently that all these three roots are real. We shall later give a method (Example 4) to solve the above cubic equation. 18), we can solve for the corresponding nx, ny and nz. In order to avoid the trivial solution, the condition.

If in a state of stress, the first invariant (s1 + s2 + s3) is zero, then the normal stresses on the octahedral planes will be zero and only the shear stresses will act. This is important from the point of view of the strength and failure of some materials (see Chapter 4). 8 The state of stress at a point is characterised by the components sx = 100 MPa, sy = –40 MPa, sz = 80 MPa, txy = tyz = tzx = 0 Determine the extremum values of the shear stresses, their associated normal stresses, the octahedral shear stress and its associated normal stress.

Consequently, Lame’s ellipsoid and the stress-director surface together completely define the state of stress at point P. 11 Show that Lame’s ellipsoid and the stress-director surface together completely define the state of stress at a point. Solution If s1, s2 and s3 are the principal stresses at a point P, the equation of the ellipsoid referred to principal axes is given by 2 x2 + y + z 2 = 1 2 2 2 σ1 σ2 σ3 The stress-director surface has the equation 2 x2 + y + z 2 = 1 σ1 σ2 σ3 It is known from analytical geometry that for a surface defined by F(x, y, z) = 0, the normal to the tangent at a point (x0, y0, z0 ) has direction cosines proportional to ∂F , ∂F , ∂F , evaluated at (x0, y0, z0).
