General principles[ edit ] Stress analysis is specifically concerned with solid objects. The study of stresses in liquids and gases is the subject of fluid mechanics.
Stress analysis adopts the macroscopic view of materials characteristic of continuum mechanicsnamely that all properties of materials are homogeneous at small enough scales. Thus, even the smallest particle considered in stress analysis still contains an enormous number of atoms, and its properties are averages of the properties of those atoms.
In stress analysis one normally disregards the physical causes of forces or the precise nature of the materials. Instead, one assumes that the stresses are related to strain of the material by known constitutive equations. By Newton's laws of motionany external forces that act on a system must be balanced by internal reaction forces,  or cause the particles in the affected part to accelerate.
In a solid object, all particles must move substantially in concert in order to maintain the object's overall shape.
It follows that any force applied to one part of a solid object must give rise to internal reaction forces that propagate from particle to particle throughout an extended part of the system.
With very rare exceptions such as ferromagnetic materials or planet-scale bodiesinternal forces are due to very short range intermolecular interactions, and are therefore manifested as surface contact forces between adjacent particles — that is, as stress.
In principle, that means determining, implicitly or explicitly, the Cauchy stress tensor at every point. The external forces may be body forces such as gravity or magnetic attractionthat act throughout the volume of a material;  or concentrated loads such as friction between an axle and a bearingor the weight of a train wheel on a railthat are imagined to act over a two-dimensional area, or along a line, or at single point.
The same net external force will have a different effect on the local stress depending on whether it is concentrated or spread out. Types of structures[ edit ] In civil engineering applications, one typically considers structures to be in static equilibrium: In mechanical and aerospace engineering, however, stress analysis must often be performed on parts that are far from equilibrium, such as vibrating plates or rapidly spinning wheels and axles.
In those cases, the equations of motion must include terms that account for the acceleration of the particles.
In structural design applications, one usually tries to ensure the stresses are everywhere well below the yield strength of the material. In the case of dynamic loads, the material fatigue must also be taken into account.
However, these concerns lie outside the scope of stress analysis proper, being covered in materials science under the names strength of materialsfatigue analysis, stress corrosion, creep modeling, and other. Experimental methods[ edit ] Stress analysis can be performed experimentally by applying forces to a test element or structure and then determining the resulting stress using sensors.
In this case the process would more properly be known as testing destructive or non-destructive. Experimental methods may be used in cases where mathematical approaches are cumbersome or inaccurate.
Special equipment appropriate to the experimental method is used to apply the static or dynamic loading. There are a number of experimental methods which may be used: Tensile testing is a fundamental materials science test in which a sample is subjected to uniaxial tension until failure.
The results from the test are commonly used to select a material for an application, for quality controlor to predict how a material will react under other types of forces.
Properties that are directly measured via a tensile test are the ultimate tensile strengthmaximum elongation and reduction in cross-section area. From these measurements, properties such as Young's modulusPoisson's ratioyield strengthand the strain-hardening characteristics of the sample can be determined.
Strain gauges can be used to experimentally determine the deformation of a physical part. A commonly used type of strain gauge is a thin flat resistor that is affixed to the surface of a part, and which measures the strain in a given direction. From the measurement of strain on a surface in three directions the stress state that developed in the part can be calculated.
Neutron diffraction is a technique that can be used to determine the subsurface strain in a part. Stress in plastic protractor causes birefringence. The photoelastic method relies on the fact that some materials exhibit birefringence on the application of stress, and the magnitude of the refractive indices at each point in the material is directly related to the state of stress at that point.
The stresses in a structure can be determined by making a model of the structure from such a photoelastic material.
Dynamic mechanical analysis DMA is a technique used to study and characterize viscoelastic materials, particularly polymers.
The viscoelastic property of a polymer is studied by dynamic mechanical analysis where a sinusoidal force stress is applied to a material and the resulting displacement strain is measured.
For a perfectly elastic solid, the resulting strains and the stresses will be perfectly in phase.
For a purely viscous fluid, there will be a 90 degree phase lag of strain with respect to stress. Viscoelastic polymers have the characteristics in between where some phase lag will occur during DMA tests.Expert Reviewed.
