Strain Energy
• A uniform rod is subjected to a slowly increasing
load
• The elementary work done by the load P as the rod
elongates by a small dx is
dU = P dx = elementary work

## which is equal to the area of width dx under the load-

deformation diagram.

## • The total work done by the load for a deformation x1,

x1
U = ∫ P dx = total work = strain energy
0
which results in an increase of strain energy in the rod.

## • In the case of a linear elastic deformation,

energy per unit volume,

0
ε1
u = ∫ σ x dε = strain energy density
0

## • The total strain energy density resulting from the

deformation is equal to the area under the curve to ε1.

## • As the material is unloaded, the stress returns to zero

but there is a permanent deformation. Only the strain
energy represented by the triangular area is recovered.

## • Remainder of the energy spent in deforming the material

is dissipated as heat.

Strain-Energy Density
• The strain energy density resulting from
setting ε1 = εR is the modulus of toughness.

## • The energy per unit volume required to cause

the material to rupture is related to its
ductility as well as its ultimate strength.

limit,

## Work and Energy Under Several Loads

• Deflections of an elastic beam subjected to two
concentrated loads,
x1 = x11 + x12 = α11P1 + α12 P2
x2 = x21 + x22 = α 21P1 + α 22 P2

## • Compute the strain energy in the beam by

evaluating the work done by slowly applying
P1 followed by P2,
(
U = 12 α11P12 + 2α12 P1P2 + α 22 P22 )
• Reversing the application sequence yields
(
U = 12 α 22 P22 + 2α 21P2 P1 + α11P12 )
• Strain energy expressions must be equivalent.
It follows that α12=α21 (Maxwell’s reciprocal
theorem).
