7. Materials Selection using charts: effect of slope of selection line Exam question: What is the Physics behind the different exponents in the Indices’ equations? Index Different materials are selected, depending on the slope of the selection line Selection line slope 1 Selection line slope 2 Selection line slope 3 MECH4301 2011 Lecture 2 Charts

8. This is how the world looks like after you pass the Materials Selection Course Demystifying Material Indices IFB 2012 INTRODUCTION Material Indices

9. Material 1, Mass 1 stiffness S Materials 2, Mass 2 stiffness S Demystifying Material Indices (beam, elastic bending) For given shape, the reduction in mass at constant bending stiffness is given by the reciprocal of the ratio of material indices. Same applies to bending strength. IFB 2012 INTRODUCTION Material Indices

10. heavier lighter Example: How good are Mg and Al when it comes to reducing mass? A 10 kg component made of Steel… m2/m1 = M1/M2 Exam question: Which beam is fatter?? Same: Which panel is thicker?? IFB 2012 INTRODUCTION Material Indices

11. Comparative weight of panels of equal stiffness (Steel, Ti, Al and Mg) (Emley, Principles of Mg Technology) The Mg-Li panel is thicker IFB 2012 INTRODUCTION Material Indices

12. Example of solution to Tutorial # 1 (Exercise 7.3) IFB 2012 INTRODUCTION Material Indices

13. Example of solution to Tutorial # 1 (Exercise 7.3) Derivation of the Material Index: When fully loaded,the beam should not fail, i.e., maximum  < * (yield strength) m = lASolve for A= m/l. The maximum force is I/ym=A3/2/6 Solving for m: Material Index : M = (*)2/3/. Select using the - chart with a line of slope 1.5, on the upper left corner. 2011 Lecture 3 Material Indices

14. Select using the - chart with a line of slope 1.5, upper left corner. Copy the results from CES Sort the materials by their Index Conclusions to the chart/table: Composites, timber are the best materials. Al, Mg and steels are good competitors. Foams perform generally well, due to their low density. However, if made out of foams, the beams will be rather fat/big! 2011 Lecture 3 Material Indices

21. Selection corner E 1 Selection line for tie rods Selection line for beams Selection line for panels 2 3  Ranking Materials using Charts ceramics metals composites & polymers One very significant conclusion from this course, so far: For beams and panels, materials with very low density are more important than for tie-rods. This is why foams are not used for tie rods, but are preferred for beams and more so for flat panels. foams Important: Read textbook pp.93-95: Summary and Conclusions to Ch. 4, Properties of charts.
