Introduction

Mechanics of materials is a study of the relationship between the

external loads on a body and the intensity of the internal loads within

the body.

This subject also involves the deformations and stability of a body when

subjected to external forces or in other words; the behavior of materials

and structures under load The wa in which the react to a

will be the main concern in this scope of study.

horizontal directions.
The support prevents translation in

and also rotation, Hence a couple

Equation of Equilibrium

The condition of statics are:

the algebraic sum of all forces (or components of forces) in any direction must equal to zero or ∑ F = 0

the algebraic sum of the moments of the forces about any axis or point must equal to zero or ∑ M = 0.

Equilibrium of a Deformable Body

Objective of FBD is to determine the resultant force and moment acting within a body.

In general, there are 4 different types of resultant loadings:

Normal force, N

Shear force, V

Torsional moment or torque, T

Bending moment, M

loadings: ☻ Normal force, N ☻ Shear force, V ☻ Torsional moment or torque, T ☻

The hanger assembly is used to support a distributed loading of w = 15 kN/m. Determine the average shear stress in the 10-mm diameter bolt at A and the average tensile stress in rod AB, which has a diameter of 12 mm. If the yield shear stress of the bolt is τ y = 175 MPa and the yield stress for the rod is σ y = 260 MPa, determine the factor of safety with respect to yielding in each case. Assume double shear at the pinned joint A and B.

SEP 2012/MEC411 (Intersession) Figure Q1 (a) below shows two wooden members, A and B that are joined together vertically to support a 24 kN load, by plywood splices, C and D. The surface of contact between the wooden members and plywood splices are glued together, where the ultimate shearing stress in the glue used is 800 kPa. The clearance between the members is 8 mm. Determine the smallest allowable length, L of each splice and the factor of safety of the design. [308 mm; 1.0]
