Title:Inelastic design of load carrying members part 1; theoretical and experimental analyses of circular cross section torsion tension members made of materials that creep
Author(s):Dharmarajan, S.; Sidebottom, O.M.
Subject(s):Inelastic Design
Load Carrying
Abstract:This investigation presents a new approach to the problem of multiaxial creep. The theory is based on the usual assumptions; namely, the directions of the principal stresses and strains coincide, the Henky-Mises flow condition is valid, and the material is incompressible. It is proposed that load-deformation relations be derived for a specified time so that the theory is independent of time. For uniaxial state of stress the flow condition was assumed to be the isochronous stress-strain diagram obtained from constant stress, tension and compression creep curves. The torsion-tension member was chosen to represent the multiaxial states of stress. Sokolovsky’s compressible solution was compared with a closed solution based on the assumption of incompressibility. Experimental data were obtained from nylon and polyethylene members tested in a controlled environment room and 17-PH stainless steel members at 972°F. Good agreement was found between theory and experiment.
