Stress Strain Relationship Archive

Stress strain curve is a behavior of material when it is subjected to load. In this diagram stresses are plotted along the vertical axis and as a result of these stresses, corresponding strains are plotted along the horizontal axis. As …

How structure will perform when it goes under load? It’s all depends on the type of stress, stress strain relationship and the properties of the material from which it is made. The stress – strain relationship has an importance in …

A slope of the secant between two points on the curve is known as secant modulus. Secant modulus is applicable when concrete specimen shows non-linearity or where initial tangent modulus not gives too much required information. It is mostly applied …

Elastic modulus of concrete is not easy to determine, because of non-linear behavior of concrete. Concrete is very strong in compression but very weak in tension and this is the main reason for non-linear behavior of concrete. To overcome this …

Poison’s ratio is the ratio between lateral strains and longitudinal strains. Poisson’s ratio, mathematically can be given as: V= – (lateral strain)/(longitudnal strain) When compressive force acts on a specimen then with the increase in force, two types of strains …

Strain is the change in length as compared to original length that is before any variation. Strains in concrete are the reduction in volume of concrete after the application of loading then change in volume with respect to volume of …

Stress is defined as; ” force per unit area.” Stress is the combination of loads like dead loads, live loads, wind loads that will acts on the structure during construction and during service life. Mathematically given as: Stress = force/Area …
