Elements of Theory of Elasticity (with solved examples)


Elements of Theory of Elasticity (with solved examples) Introduction: Applications of the finite element method include elasticity problems also. Theory of elasticity deals with the stress and displacements in elastic solids generated by external forces. Some Important Aspects in theory of elasticity: Stress Components There are two types of stresses acting on each face of … Read more

State of Stress – Stress Tensor

Three dimensional Stresses

State of stress at a Point (Stress Tensor) Consider a three dimensional body in equilibrium under the action of a set of external forces P1,P2,P3.. , the stresses developed in different planes vary. To study the magnitude of these forces at any point let the body be divided into 2 parts A&B by a cross … Read more
