Strength of Materials Posted on January 3, 2019 by Editor Share this In mechanics of materials, the strength of a material is its ability to withstand an applied load without failure or plastic deformation. The field of strength of materials deals with forces and deformations that result from their acting on a material. The complete theory began with the consideration of the behaviour of one and two dimensional members of structures. The deformation per unit length is called Tensile stress Compression stress Shear stress Strain Which of the following materials has the least modulus of elasticity? Glass Copper Steel Aluminium It states that the elongation is proportional to the force Pascal's law Hooke's law Young's theoram Farrell's law Stress on an object is____its applied force directly proportional to inversely proportional to less than greater than A rigid body under the action of external forces can be replaced by two masses placed at a fixed distance apart. The two masses form an equivalent dynamical system, if The sum of two masses is equal to the total mass of the body The sum of mass movement of inertia of masses about their centre of gravity is equal to the mass moment of inertia of the body The centre of gravity of the two masses coincides with that of the body. All of these. A static load is mounted at the centre of a shaft rotating at uniform angular velocity.
