...application of forces on it. The desired form or final shape of the metal defines which type of deformation process has to be applied. Physical and mechanical properties of metal such as strength, hardness, brittleness, elasticity, plasticity, malleability, toughness, grain structure, isotropic behavior etc. also play an important role in deciding which kind of manufacturing process is to be used. Metals are generally ductile materials with a large plastic range on stress strain curve. This is due to the metallic bond present in them (Askeland, 2009: 33). The stress strain curve of mild steel is shown here, (although it will be different for each metal... Table of Contents...

...material as compared to glass substances. Civil engineers would suggest stronger and durable components for their projects since they are built for a long time. Q4. A metal or any other structural material will undergo a change in its shape when a sufficient load is applied to it and this change in shape is called deformation. Elastic deformation is a process by which a temporary shape change takes place and the material comes to its original shape when the applied force is removed. Plastic deformation will be uniform between the elastic limit and ultimate tensile strength (UTS). It means uniform plastic deformation is applicable only between certain limits and it will be non-uniform... ?Engineering...

The constituent materials are divided into two; the matrix and the reinforcement. There should be at least one portion of each in order to make a composite material. The matrix surrounds the reinforcement material in the composite; therefore acting as a supporting agent. The reinforcement material on the other hand gives the finished structure superior mechanical and physical properties. This research paper... ...
