Cylindrical rod

Cylindrical rod is loaded by tensile forces.

Problem type:
Axisymmetric problem of stress analysis.

Geometry:

Cylindrical rod mechanical model

Given:
rode length L=3000 mm;
rode cross-section diameter d = 30 mm;
Young's modulus of the aluminum alloy E = 70 GPa;
Poisson's coefficient of the aluminum alloy ν = 1/3;
Force P = 85 kN.

Task:

Calculate bar elongation, the decrease in diameter and the increase in volume.

Solution:

One of the rod's ends is fixed. The other end is loaded by the tensile force fz = P / S,
where S= 786·10-6 [m2] - is the rod cross-section area.

Volume change can be calculated by the length dL and width dr increments:
dV = (L+dL)·π·(r+dr)2 - L·π·r2.

Results:
Cylindrical rod mechanical simulation

Volume change dV = (3000+5.1536)·π·(15-0.008589)2 - 3000·π·152 = 1210.91 mm3.
