Identify the geometry of the solid to be modeled; —3. Determine the loading applied to the solid; —4. Decide what physics must be included in the model; —5. Choose and calibrate a constitutive law that describes the behavior of the material; —6. Choose a method of analysis; —7. Here is a list of of some of the things that can typically be calculated very accurately using solid mechanics: The deformed shape of a structure or component subjected to mechanical, thermal or electrical loading; —2.

The forces required to cause a particular shape change; —3. The stiffness of a structure or component; —4. The internal forces stresses in a structure or component; —5. The critical forces that lead to failure by structural instability buckling ; FEA model of rupture during tube hydroforming.

Natural frequencies of vibration for a structure or component. Failure predictions are more difficult, however, because the physics of failure can only be modeled using approximate constitutive equations. These must be calibrated experimentally, and do not always perfectly characterize the failure mechanism. Nevertheless, there are well established procedures for each of the following: Predict the critical loads to cause fracture in a brittle or ductile solid containing a crack; 2.


Predict the fatigue life of a component under cyclic loading; 3. Predict the rate of growth of a stress-corrosion crack in a component; 4. Predict the creep life of a component; 5. Find the length of a crack that a component can contain and still withstand fatigue or fracture; 6.

Predict the wear rate of a surface under contact loading; 7.

Predict the fretting or contact fatigue life of a surface. True but it is usually not obvious how much of the component to model, and at what level of detail. For example, in a crash simulation, must the entire vehicle be modelled, or just the front part?

Should the engine block be included? At the other extreme, it is often not obvious how much geometrical detail needs to be included a.c.bower a computation. If you model a component, do you need to include every geometrical feature such as bolt holes, cutouts, chamfers, etc? The following guidelines might be helpful: For modeling brittle fracture, fatigue failure, or for calculating critical loads required to initiate plastic flow in a component, it is very soljds to model the geometry in great detail, because geometrical features can lead to stress concentrations that initiate damage.

For modeling creep damage, large scale plastic deformation eg metal formingor vibration analysis, geometrical details are less important. Geometrical features often only influence solirs stresses they do not have much influence far away.

This means that if you are interested in the stress state at a particular point in an elastic solid, you need not worry about geometrical features that are far from the region of interest.

Saint-Venants principle strictly only applies to elastic s.f.bower, although it can usually also be applied to plastic solids that strain harden. As a general rule, it is best to start with the simplest possible model, and see what it predicts.

If not, the results can serve as a guide in refining the calculation. Temperature is the most common additional field quantity. Do you need to do a dynamic analysis, or a static analysis? These arise in aeroelasticity design of flexible aircraft wings or helicopter rotor blades; or very long bridges ; offshore structures; pipelines; or fluid containers.


Coupled problems are also very common in biomedical applications such as blood flow or cellular mechanics.

In these applications the Reynolds number for the fluid flow is much lower, and fluid forces are dominated by viscous effects. Different analysis techniques are available for these two applications. Using the wrong model, af.bower inaccurate material properties, will always completely invalidate your predictions.

Here are mecchanics few of your choices, with suggested applications: FEA model of a rubber tire, using a hyperelastic constitutive equation. Isotropic linear elasticity 2. Anisotropic linear elasticity 3.

Rate independent metal plasticity. Strain Gradient Plasticity 9. Discrete Dislocation Plasticity Critical state plasticity cam-clay Finite element method Among the up-to-date methods of stress state analysis, the finite element method abbreviated as FEM below, or often as FEA for analyses. Strength of the lithosphere: The various engineering and true stress-strain properties obtainable from a tension test are summarized by the categorized listing of Table 1.
