Tag: modulus of rigidity Stress-Strain Relationships

Structural steels display linearly elastic properties when the load does not exceed a certain limit. Steels also are isotropic; i.e., the elastic properties are the same in all directions. The material also may be assumed homogeneous, so the smallest element of a steel member possesses the same physical property as the member. It is because of these properties that there is a linear relationship
