Mechanics of Materials
Poisson's Ratio & Hooke's Law
- Explain how Poisson's Ratio affects material behavior.
- Given a material's Poisson's Ratio, compute lateral (or secondary) strains and deformations.
- Relate Poisson's Ratio to the Modulus of Elasticity (Young's Modulus) and Shear Modulus (Modulus of Rigidity) for isotropic materials.
- Use the 3D formulation of Hooke's Law to compute strains and deformations for uni-axial, bi-axial, and tri-axial states of stress.
