  Strength Of Materials - LoveToKnow 1911
Some of the materials used in engineering, notably timber and wrought iron, are 1 P o far from being isotropic that their strength is widely different for stresses in different directions.
Owing to the plasticity of the materials to be tested, the applied loads must be able to follow considerable change of form in the test-piece: thus in testing the tensile strength of wrought iron or steel provision must be made for taking up the large extension of length which occurs before fracture.
The material of a beam is disposed to the greatest advantage as regards resistance to bending when the form is that of a pair of flanges or booms at top and bottom, held apart by a thin but stiff web or by cross-bracing, as in I beams and braced trusses.

 AllRefer.com - strength of materials (Physics) - Encyclopedia
Materials are considered to be elastic in relation to an applied stress if the strain disappears after the force is removed.
In calculating the dimensions of materials required for specific application, the engineer uses working stresses that are ultimate strengths, or elastic limits, divided by a quantity called factor of safety.
In laboratories materials are frequently "tested to destruction." They are deliberately overloaded with the particular force that acts against the property or strength to be measured.

Strength of materials is the scientific area of materials science for the study of the strength of engineering materials and their mechanical behavior in general (such as stress, deformation, strain and stress-strain relations).
Strength is considered in terms of compressive strength, tensile strength, and shear strength, namely the limit states of compressive stress, tensile stress and shear stress respectively.
Compressive strength is a limit state of compressive stress that leads to compressive failure in the manner of ductile failure (infinite theoretical yield) or in the manner of brittle failure (rupture as the result of crack propagation, or sliding among a weak plane - see shear strength).

Ultimate Strength.—The ultimate strength of a material with regard to any stated mode of stress is the stress required to produce rupture.
breaks under a uniformly distributed pull of 6o tons, the ultimate tensile strength of the material is reckoned to be 30 tons per square inch, although the actual intensity of stress which produced rupture may have been much greater than this, owing to the contraction of the section previous to fracture.
Influence of Time.—In testing a plastic material such as wrought-iron or mild steel it is found that the behaviour of the metal depends very materially on the time rate at which stress is applied.

For a given material, the ratio of stress to strain is known as Young's modulus of elasticity.
This is not the same as the strength of a material, which is the stress needed to break it.
The main variables behind fractures of tensed materials are the fracture energy, the strain energy available, and the size and shape of the worst crack in the material.

 Perforated Materials - Strength of Perforated Metals
In this test, the equivalent strength of the perforated material is used in place of the strength of the solid material.
By evaluating the effect of the perforations on the yield strength of the material, S*, can be obtained as a function of the yield strength of the solid or unperforated material, S. Thus, the designer is able to determine safety margins for the perforated material for any geometry of application and any loading conditions.
Strength of materials perforated with round holes in a standard pattern, where strength is defined as yield strength of perforated material/yield strength of unperforated material.

 Composite Materials
This implied that the material properties of composite materials may be different in tension and in compression as well as in bending.
One quick way to estimate the material properties, i.e., the moduli in 1 and 2 direction of a composite is by using the rule of mixture.
The term "composite material" can be broadly defined as the resultant of combining two or more materials, each of which has their own unique properties, to form one new material.

 Strength of materials - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Strength of materials is the scientific area of materials science for the study of the strength of engineering materials and their mechanical behavior in general (such as stress, deformation, strain and stress-strain relations).
Compressive strength for materials is generally higher than that of the tensile stress, but geometry is very important in the analysis of compressive stresses.
Ultimate strength is an attribute directly related to a material, rather than just specific specimen of the material, and as such is quoted force per unit of cross section area (N/m²).

The material we used, indium gallium arsenide, is a brittle, weak crystal.
Apart from the obvious interest in high strength at high temperature, another application of these results may be in coating technology.
Many engineering materials require coatings to protect them from the environment (such as paint, or enamel, or oxide ceramics) which often fail because they are brittle.

Strength of materials (also known as mechanics of materials) is that branch of classical mechanics which deals with the static response of solid bodies under the action of applied forces.
A better approach is to develop some fundamental principles that govern the strength and rigidity of all solid bodies and use these principles in combination with a few experimentally determined mechanical properties of materials to predict how a body responds under the action of forces.

DSP technology makes it possible to manufacture cement-based materials with strength and durability five to ten times greater than that for mortar and concrete.
The binding material in conventional concrete and mortar consists of cement with a relatively large amount of water and is therefore rather porous.
In Densit® materials, the use of DSP technology, with its ultra-fine powders, reduces the waster content of the binding material to an absolute minimum.

 Guidelines for forming high-strength material
High-strength materials are becoming more common in stamping, especially for the aircraft and space industries.
Although all high-strength materials have their own special features and behave in their own unique ways, they also share some common characteristics and typical reactions to stretching and drawing.
Extra material outside of a finished part increases the amount of stretch that occurs in a product, and it leaves a large amount of stress-loaded material outside of the drawn part.
