Question 1
For plate shown in Figure 1, use solidwork simulation to calculate the maximum principle stresses andtheir locations. The materials of plate is Alloy steel (
E
= 210 GPa,
ν
= 0.29). Use the option DesignScenario in solidwork to study the effect of hole diameter on principle stress. The diameters of hole are(20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100) mm. Plot separately the graph of principle stress vs. hole diameter.Vertical axis of graphs should be stress and horizontal axis hole diameter. Discuss the results.Figure 1
Solutions
Fig. Q1A and Fig. Q1B below shows the results of finite element analysis (FEA) simulation by usingSolidWorks and the plot of principle stress vs. hole diameter.Fig. Q1A: Locations of principle stresses obtained using SolidWorks FEA Simulation when the hole’sdiameter is 50 mm.

, which is a measurement of the amount of internal forces contained in a deformable materials. It can be also defined by the internalforce per unit area (P. P., Benham; R. J., Crawford & C. G., Armstrong, 1996, pp. 43). Mohr’s circle is analternative which represents all possible states of normal and shear stress on any plane through a stressedpoint. From the Mohr’s circle, the plane causes the material to experience zero shear stress is termedprincipal planes and the normal stresses acting on them are termed principal stresses which alwaysdenoted as (

, or,

and

) (P. P., Benham; R. J., Crawford & C. G., Armstrong, 1996, pp.298 & pp. 301). Based on the results obtained from the SolidWorks FEA simulation as shown in Fig.Q1A above, the magnitude of the principal stresses are 7.7 MPa and 0.4 MPa respectively. Apart fromthat, the stress is maximum at the necking of the plate and minimum at the top and bottom edges of thehole. When a load of 5 kN is applied at the free end of the plate, the plate experience uniform stressdistribution and the deformation only takes place in tangential direction of the applied load.

is drilled with an offset of 0.25 m from the fixed end, the distribution of stresses deviates when the load of 5 kN is applied at the free end. The deviation of colours in the legend beside the simulation as shown inFig. Q1A above indicates the magnitude of principle stresses with respective to their locations. In order tostudy the effect of principle stresses resulted by various hole diameters, the top edge of the hole has beenselected as a reference point. According to the definition of normal stress,
AF

where
F

A
is the area normal to the applied force, the upsurge in hole diameters will results the reductionin area which consequence the increase in principle stress as shown in Fig. Q1B above.
