For example, for an isotropic material [G.sub.11] = [G.sub.22] = G, that is, the shear modulus, and [G.sub.12] = [G.sub.21] = 0.
To confirm reliability of this new approach, test was conducted on isotropic material. Through the experiment shear modulus was determined and then compared with the value calculated from results of tensile test.
Regardless of the actual manufacturing process, MJF produces fine features and more consistent isotropic material properties, and is suitable for complex, low-volume quantities of parts like brackets and clips, mechanical assemblies, component housings, and durable but accurate jigs and fixtures.
In order to improve the accuracy of the model of residual stresses, the wound cylinder is assumed as the transversely isotropic material in this article.
The results showed that when oil shale was regarded as an isotropic material, there was a relatively marked disagreement between experimental and actual results.
We consider a homogeneous simple shear in the isotropic plane of a transversely isotropic material. The deformation is defined by
In an isotropic material, these three types of quantities cannot couple to one another.
If the rock behaves as an isotropic material, then [s.sub.c] = [s.sub.t] in all directions, and equation (10) is reduced to:
In fact most experimental studies choose values of Poisson ratio in the isotropic material range 0 less than v0 less than 0.5 and do not factor the filtration process and anisotropic material composition of the membrane's inner and outer layers which remain in place after the media has deflated (aneurysm has ruptured) into consideration.
Steel is considered to be isotropic material, and concrete is regarded as transversal isotropic material.
An isotropic material indicates that the mechan- ical response is similar regardless of the stress field direction requiring Young's modulus (E) and Poisson's ratio () values for the FE calculation.
