Materials 2.

Strength of Materials 2

What is Poisson's Ratio? Poisson's Ratio (v) - Transverse Strain/Axial Strain. (Has no units). each material has its own poisson's ratio. values has to be between -1.0 and + 0.5. A V values of 0 means that a sample would squash straight down without spreading out to the sides
What are Auxetics? These are materials that have negative Poisson ratios (-ve v). If you try to stretch them, they actually get wider.
Explain the Force-Extension Graph? The Area under the Force-Extension graph is work done per unit volume. Since workdone is equal to the applied force x by movement (extension) in the direction of the force.
Analysis of a Stress -Strain Graph. The gradient is Stiffness.The steeper the line the greater the stiffness of the material.
who is nardia pyne? nardia pyne is the coolest
What is Brittle Fracture? characterized by very low plastic deformation
What is Toughness? ability of a material to resist fracture. Toughness has units of energy per volume.
Stress- Srain Graph. Limit of proportionality - beyond which no longer obeys hooke's law. Elastic Limit - Beyond which sample will be permanently distorted. Yield stress - beyond which there is a significant increase in the ease of distortion.
Stress- Srain Graph 2. Ultimate Tensile Stress - largest stress that the sample can withstand. Breaking Stress - at which the 2 ends of the sample are seperated.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
