B dt Ϫ 'q dt 'q# because f(t1) ϭ f(t2) ϭ 0. Hence Eq. 80) is equivalent to t2 'l d 'l 3 fstd a 'q 2 dt 'q. b dt 5 0 t1 for all f(t). 82) can hold for all f(t) only if d 'l 'l 50 . 2 dt 'q 'q which is the Lagrange equation of the system. 21 The extension to an n-degree-of-freedom system is made by employing n arbitrary differentiable functions fk(t), k ϭ 1, . , n such that fk(t1) ϭ fk(t2) ϭ 0. For the generalizations of Hamilton’s principle which are necessary in treating nonholonomic systems, the references should be consulted.

Such simplified structures are generally characterized as being a level surface in the solution coordinate system. 3 MECHANICS OF MATERIALS include rods, beams, rectangular plates, circular plates, cylindrical shells, and spherical shells. , a sphere is the surface r ϭ constant in spherical coordinates, it is a great convenience to express the equations of linear elastic theory in a coordinate invariant form. General tensor notation is used to accomplish this task. The governing equations are solved through numerical analysis on a case-by-case basis.

For ductile materials the yield surface may be taken as an infinitely long right cylinder having a center axis defined by 1 ϭ 2 ϭ 3. Because the yield criterion is represented by a right cylinder it is adequate to define the yield curve, which is the intersection with a plane normal to the axis of the cylinder. 20 MECHANICAL DESIGN FUNDAMENTALS FIG. 16 Tresca and Mises criteria. (a) General yield criteria. (b) One principal stress constant. (see Fig. 16). ” Considering any one of the principal stresses as constant, the “yield locus” can be represented by the intersection of the plane i ϭ constant with the cylindrical yield surface, which is represented as an ellipse for the Mises criterion and an elongated hexagon for the Tresca criterion (Fig.
