2 Introduction Structural materials are used to construct the loadbearing structural part of building constructions. Loadbearing structures of buildings should safely support loads acting on the structure (without demage, rupture, loss of stability, falling over or down), and transmit loads to the subsoil under the building. Their most important characteristic is having adequate strength. Strength is the greatest force per unit area that the material cab bear without demage, rupture. Tensile strength, compression strength and shear strength can be distinguished, according to the way of actuation the force is acting on to the cross-section of the investigated member. Considering a cross-section of a short linear member, the above strengths can be determined approximately as indicated on the figure: FUNDAMENTALS OF STRUCTURES STRUCTURAL MATERIALS page 2

FUNDAMENTALS OF STRUCTURES STRUCTURAL MATERIALS page 5

6 1. Uniaxial stress-strain relationships of structural materials Definitions: Stress = σ = force per unit area = A F (N/mm 2 ) Stress at rupture= strength (compression or tensile strength according to the direction of F) Strain = ε = specific deformation = alongation or contraction Δl = length l Plastic behaviour: the material deforms under compression or tension without stress increment Characteristic mechanical behaviours in uniaxial stress state FUNDAMENTALS OF STRUCTURES STRUCTURAL MATERIALS page 6

7 elastic rigid-plastic elastic-plastic nonlinear Hook's law describes the linear elastic mechanical behaviour: σ = E ε where E: modulus of elasticity (N/mm 2 ) Definition of E: the value of the stress to be applied to double (or in case of compression to halve) the length of the member (ε=1) FUNDAMENTALS OF STRUCTURES STRUCTURAL MATERIALS page 7

11 Mechanical behavior of the tested materials Timber Strength perpendicular to grains is different (very low). Linear elastic behavior. Strength is similar to compression strength of concrete. Steel After linear elastic behavior yield produces great plastic deformation. The same strength in compression or tension. The strength is approximately 10 times greater than that of timber. Concrete Compression and tensile strength is very different. After short linear behavior non-linear σ-ε curve can be observed. Ultimate deformation is much smaller than that of steel. Brickwork Negligible tensile strength. The strength of brickwork is much smaller, than that of ceramic bricks. Compression strength is at about by one order of magnitude smaller than that of concrete. FUNDAMENTALS OF STRUCTURES STRUCTURAL MATERIALS page 11
