Maximum Normal Stress Criterion solidworks simulation

The maximum normal stress criterion also known as Coulomb’s criterion is based on the Maximum normal stress theory. According to this theory failure occurs when the maximum principal stress reaches the ultimate strength of the material for simple tension. This criterion is used for brittle materials. It assumes that the …

Mohr-Coulomb Stress Criterion solidworks simulation

The Mohr-Coulomb stress criterion is based on the Mohr-Coulomb theory also known as the Internal Friction theory. This criterion is used for brittle materials with different tensile and compressive properties. Brittle materials do not have a specific yield point and hence it is not recommended to use the yield strength …

Maximum Shear Stress Criterion solidworks simulation

The maximum shear stress criterion, also known as Tresca yield criterion, is based on the Maximum Shear stress theory. This theory predicts failure of a material to occur when the absolute maximum shear stress (τmax ) reaches the stress that causes the material to yield in a simple tension test. …

Maximum von Mises Stress Criterion solidworks simulation

The maximum von Mises stress criterion is based on the von Mises-Hencky theory, also known as the Shear-energy theory or the Maximum distortion energy theory. In terms of the principal stresses σ1, σ2, σ3, the von Mises stress is expressed as: σvonMises= {[( σ1 – σ2 )2 + ( σ2 …
