We have been seeing the shafts with the different cross-sections. What would really happen when a mechanical component has a different cross-section? Would it affect the stress distribution in the component? Yes exactly. Let’s see how the irregular stress distribution results in stress concentration. Stress Concentration Stress concentration occurs due to the irregular stress distribution. This irregular stress […]
In Mechanical Engineering, Machine Design is subjected to creating new or Advanced machines. This involves improving the existing machines to better machines.
The design process is a time-consuming process which includes implementing an Idea and considering the commercial and economic aspects, Making the idea into a shape in the form of drawings by keeping the available resources in mind to make the actual Idea into a life.
This is the art of Mechanical engineering.
The Idea Thake shape and eventually come to life
As we discussed earlier What is fatigue failure. The Fatigue refers to the failure of the machine component due to the repeated or cyclic loading. Whereas the fatigue strength or fatigue limit or Endurance limit is used to describe the material property that the cyclic load can be applied to the material without causing the failure. […]
In Strength of materials, Fatigue refers to the failure of the machine component due to the repeated or cyclic loading. Due to the fluctuation in the stress, this failure occurs. Let’s discuss the Fatigue failure in briefly. Fatigue Failure Fatigue failure is defined as the brittle fractures occurred while a repeated load or cyclic load […]
Prediction of the failure of the machine component in the case of the uniaxial stresses(Simple tension or compression) is very simple by understanding the Stress-strain curve. Predicting the failure of any machine component is complicated when the machine component is subjected to the different types of Bi-axial stresses(Component subjected to two different stresses) or Tri-axial […]
From all the way, we have discussed the different types of stress and strains, Now its time to understand what are the principal stresses. The maximum stress induced in a plane is called the principal stress and the plane at which the maximum stress induced referred to the principal plane where the shear stress is […]
