EN1048 Engineering Applications Name Institution Abstract In this experiment the modulus of rigidity and yield shear stress are determined for specimens of mild steel and brass of circular cross section. In this case, the shear property was used to measure the maximum torque measured at the notional strength, rigidity and the shear strength by ?…

Extract of sample

Fenner and other (1984) indicated that the modulus of rigidity is given by the ratio of stress to shear strain often represented mathematically as ?/?. As widely cited, modulus of rigidity is essential in measuring the material’s shear stiffness and it is known to be analogous to Young’s modulus for any elastic behaviour in compression or tension (Benham, Crawford & Armstrong, 1996). Given that a ductile material component useful in providing shear, an individual need to note that the maximum shear stress is safety, which is less than the materials yield shear stress (?y). However, a brittle material the criterion of failure is based upon its tensile stress (Gere &Timoshenko, 1984). Research indicate that the theory of torsion often give the torque in form of rotation as (1) The equation 1 above is often derived from Hooke’s law and it is also valid for the shear stresses though somewhat lower than shearing proportional limit (Case, Chilver & Ross, 1993). ...

Seismic Response of Reinforced Concrete Frame Buildings with Different Ductility Classes Using EC8 and EC2
The concept of reinforced concrete was first initiated in Japan during the 1950s. However in the initial times, the use of the RC buildings was not considered as significant, a situation that has modified in the present times (Aoyama, 2001, pp.1-2). Considering natural calamities like the earthquake, it is essential that the constructed buildings are based on such materials that are capable of…

Power hand drill
The grouping or classification of hand drills depends mainly by the maximum size of drill bit shaft that the drill chuck can hold. A power drill comprises mainly of two sub-systems, which are mechanical and electrical. The two sub-systems play specific, different, and important roles in the working of the electrical hand drill. The first subsystem, which is the mechanical, has components, which…
