Kinematic analysis and strain

Kinematic analysis and strain

(Chapter 2, also page 25)

Total displacement field (page 39) can be divided into: scales

  • Bulk translation (Displacement of the center of mass)

  • General deformation

    General deformation can be further divided into:

    • Rigid rotation (about a point in the mass)

    • Pure strain (or deformation)

      Pure strain can have two components:

      • Dilation (change in size)

      • Distortion (change in shape)

Strain page 51 61
Strain scales (page 51-61)

  • Strain =dilation and /or distortion

  • Can be homogeneous or heterogeneous

    Homogeneous strain:

    • Straight lines remain straight

    • Parallel lines remain parallel

    • Can be described mathematically

      Heterogeneous strain can be divided into zones of homogeneous strain for analysis

Strain ellipse or ellipsoid page 54
Strain ellipse scales (or ellipsoid) page 54

  • Under homogeneous strain, a circle (or sphere) deforms to a perfect ellipse (or ellipsoid)

  • A convenient way of looking at strain

  • Forms when an undeformed circle (or sphere) is homogeneously deformed

Stretch and extension pages 55 68
Stretch and extension scales pages 55-68

  • Stretch (S) =

  • Extension (e) = = S-1

  • Quadratic elongation (λ) = S2 =(1+e)2

Strain Can be scales

  • Instantaneous (each increment of deformation. More on this later)

  • Finite (the final deformed shape after adding up all the instantaneous strain)

    Line with maximum finite stretch after deformation = The long axis of the finite strain ellipse

    Line with minimum finite stretch (maximum shortening) after deformation = The short axis of the finite strain ellipse (page 66)

Angular shear (ψ) (pages 61-63) = Measures change in angles between lines

  • Find two lines that were initially perpendicular to each other

  • Measure the angle between them after deformation

  • Subtract that angle from 90° (departure from its perpendicular position)

    Sign of ψ indicates which direction the line has rotated (page 61)

    Shear strain γ = tan ψ (page 64)

Fundamental properties of homogeneous strain in 2 d page 70
Fundamental properties of homogeneous strain in 2-D (page 70)

The finite (or principal) strain axes are mutually perpendicular (directions of zero angular shear)

Principal strain axes = Directions of maximum and minimum stretch = Directions of zero shear strain

The strain ellipse Always contain:

  • two lines that do not change length (stretch=0)

  • two directions with maximum shear strain

    Stretch and shear strain values change systematically

In reality, strain is ALWAYS three dimensional (S 70)1>S2>S3, pages 78-79)

When S1xS2xS3≠1, Strain is accompanied by change in overall volume (pages 81-83)

Important: Ramsay’s strain field diagram (page 83, Fig. 2.58)

Special case scenario: Plane strain

When S1>S2=1>S3 (No finite strain along intermediate strain axis)

Implies no volume change

Plane strain can be expressed in 2-D 70)

Two end member cases (pages 84-85)

  • Pure shear

  • Simple shear

    Pure shear

  • Principal strain axes do not rotate in space (no external rotation)

  • Lines within the strain ellipse rotate with respect to the principal strain axes (internal rotation present)

  • This is an example of coaxial strain (pages 83-84), not synonymous with it

  • Simple shear 70)

    • Principal strain axes rotate in space (external rotation present)

    • All lines except ONE rotate with respect to the principal strain axes (internal rotation present)

    • This is an example of noncoaxial strain (pages 83-84), not synonymous with it

      General shear (a combination of pure and simple shear) is also noncoaxial
