Mechanics of Materials

Lesson 30

Allowable Stress Design III

Learning outcomes

    1. Compute bearing stress on a curved surface using ASD.
    2. Explain the importance of stress concentrations, how they limit the applicability of ASD, and predict where they are likely to occur.
    3. Understand similarities between fluid flow in a pipe and stress flow in a solid material.
    4. Understand that the maximum stress in the vicinity of a stress concentration is higher than the net stress (which in turn is higher than the gross stress).
    5. Recognize that stress concentrations are outside the scope of ASD.
