Question: 4 a cube of material is loaded triaxially resulting in...

Question details

4. A cube of material is loaded triaxially resulting in the following stresses at the point of plastic yielding: σ,-140 MPa, σ y-20 MPa, and σ z-35 MPa. (a) What is the maximum shear strength of the material according to the Tresca yield criterion? (b) If the stress in direction Z at failure were 70 MPa instead, how does this change your result?
