## Solids vs. liquids

We all understand generally what the difference between
solid and a liquid is, but in practice this difference can be
blurred..
A very general distinction is this:
Elastic behaviour
When you apply and then remove a force, fast or
slow, the object returns to its original shape!
Inelastic behaviour (flow)
When you apply and remove a force, the shape of
the object is permanently changed.
How can we understand the reaction of materials to forces
independently of the geometry of the tested object?

Stress
Stress is the force per unit area applied to an object:

Force
=
Area

## Units = N/m2 or Pascals (Pa)

Also: 1 bar = 101.3 kPa
1 MPa = 106 Pa

Compressive

16.11.2007

Tensile

## Dental Materials - Graham Cross

Shear

Adhesion may be defined simply as a force interaction
between two materials at an interface where they are in
contact.
Failure occurs at a critical stress level
Interface must support a solely tensile load:

## Area of contact and stress

Adhesive strength depends on true contact area limited by
roughness:

Rough surfaces mean small contact area, so a small force makes a large stress
at local points on surface, causing failure
Polishing a surface to make it smooth increases area and reduces stress

Strain
Strain is a measure of the change in dimension of an
object that occurs by the application of stress.
It is defined as a relative displacement:

dl
=
l
Different kinds of
strain

16.11.2007

## Stress vs. strain curve

A principle way to characterize mechanical properties of solid materials.

## Many properties can be

determined from it:
Elastic modulus
Tensile strength
Yield strength
Ductility
Resilience
Fracture toughness

Stress

Strain
This is an intrinsic signature of a material
Why would a force vs. displacement curve
not be?

Elasticity
Reversible stretching,
compression, or deforming of a
body

Stress

## In the linear elastic range,

the ratio of stress to strain is
called a modulus

Shear strain
Shear strain is a skew: it changes shape, not volume.
Very important when we consider flow.

Compressive/tensile stress:
- Changing the distance of separation
of atoms is difficult (volume change)
Shear stress:
- Changing neighbours between atoms
is much easier (shape change)
Easy!

way momentum is transferred
by a fluid during flow

constant of proportionality

Rheology
Study of the flow of all materials, including
solids and complex liquids such as polymer
melts, colloids, suspensions, slurries, pastes,
etc.
Consider a complex fluid, a polymer melt:
What happens when you shear this material?
Molecules both flow and they change their
shape they relax
Gives rise to both shear rate (d/dt) and time
dependent behaviour.

16.11.2007

19

## Time dependent material response

Due to mechanical reasons such as relaxation time of
constitutive particles in transient (ie. non-steady) flows
Or due to chemical reasons such as setting times
Usually viscosity will be used to measure this:
Initial low viscosity for dispensing and moulding
Followed by large increase in viscosity during setting
Working time time the material can be easily manipulated
Setting time time at which viscosity goes very high

## Plasticity: flow of solids

Ductile behaviour of a solid
that occurs above a special
shear stress threshold called
the yield stress: yield
This occurs for many metals
and glassy polymers

fracture, not yield

Like a liquid, plastic flow of solids involves shape change, not volume change

Viscoelasticity
Response of materials with both
elastic and viscous character:
time dependent
Eg. Elastomers
Two important forms:
Creep
Stress relaxation
Visualized by combining mechanical components of
Springs (elastic): instant response to stress
Dash-pots (viscous): slow response

Creep
Time dependent dimensional change of materials under constant
stress.

## Important for dental

amalgams:
- Melting temperature is close
to room temperature
- Teeth clenching
- Creep may be precursor to
fracture at filling edge.

Stress relaxation
When a viscoelastic material is under

Stress

## Eg. Dental waxes, resins, and gels

Manipulate into shape, then stress
drops over time
This can, in turn, lead to dimensional
