What exactly the notch sensitivity means? From our previous article, we have discussed how a fillet or a notch or a hole can reduce the stress concentration. But in this case, it will look somewhat different. actually, due to the presence of the notch or a hole in the body, the body tends to have […]
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
We have discussed how the stress concentration effect the different cross-section mechanical components. Due to the irregular stress distribution, stress concentration increases and let the component failure. So how we can reduce the stress concentration? There are few methods of reducing stress concentration. Methods of reducing stress concentration Before getting into the topic we have to […]
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 […]
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 […]
