## Simple stress | Definition and application

Stress is required to design the structure. The safety of the structure is assured by this. We will discuss in this blog how we can measure the it in the

## Torsion : Derivation, assumptions and application

Find a pen or pencil on your table hold one end tightly and rotate with the other end. The pen or pencil in your hand is subjected to torque. This

## Combined shear and bending stress in the beam

We have seen in the previous articles how bending stress comes in the beam and how we can find the shear stress. While deriving the bending and shear stress we

## Combined stress: Due to bending and torsion

When you push or pull on something, like a beam or a shaft, it doesn’t just bend or twist—it usually does both at the same time. We call this “combined

## Viscosity | Definition, application and implementation

Take three glasses and fill them with water, oil, and honey. Take the eraser from your table, drop it in the above three different glasses one by one, and note

## How do we calculate the stress due to thermal variation?

Structures often experience significant temperature variations during their service life. These temperature changes can lead to the generation of stress within the structures. As engineers, it is our responsibility to

## Poisson’s ratio | Definition, illustration, and key-points

Poisson’s ratio is a crucial concept for engineers. It helps us understand how materials respond to forces. Think of pressing on something – does it just squish down, or does

## Unveiling the Mysteries of Poisson’s Ratio: How Materials Handle Pressure

When it comes to understanding how materials react under pressure, there’s a hidden superhero called Poisson’s Ratio. It’s a fascinating concept that sheds light on how things change shape when

## Design of tensile members

We have seen design examples to determine the tensile design strength for structural steel sections. Let us explore on how to design a tensile member and learn the simple design

## Design of steel beams (Laterally supported)

In this article, you will learn how to design a steel beam. In the previous article, we discussed the different types of sections used as steel beams. We have also
