## Simple Stresses Lecture Notes

### Chapter 9

Strength of materials is the subject of the relationships between the external loads on an elastic body and the intensity of the internal forces acting on the body. Stress is defined as the intensities of the internal forces acting on the body. The study of strength of materials will deal with the load carrying capacity of a member, the deformation characteristics, and the ability of a member to maintain its initial configuration. Topics to be covered included; Introduction to Strength of Materials, Normal and Shear Stresses, Direct Normal Stresses, Direct Shear Stresses, Bearing Stresses, Stresses on Inclined Planes, and Stresses in Thin-Walled Pressure Vessels.
