    Mechanical properties for simulation

    Jignesh Vaghela

      I am analyzing stress on steel flat bar.

       

      Few mechanical properties given by supplier ( YS, TS and Elongation). Based on that I derived the MoE, however it is different from 300+ MPa Steel normal property.

       

      300 plus

      Yield strength  305 MPa

      Ultimate Tensile Strength 490 MPa

      Elongation 30% = 0.3

      strain = dl / l = 0.3/100 =0.003

      Modulus of elasticity = stress / strain = 305/ strain

            = 305/ 0.003

      = 101666 MPa

      = 102 GPa ( Normal 300+ MPa steel properties has MoE 200 GPa.

      Does anyone come across this issue?

       

      Thanks and Regards,
