Stress Concentration
1011120Stress ConcentrationWhen a large stress gradient occurs in a small, localized area of a structure, the high stress is referred to as a stress concentration. Near changes in geometry of a loaded structure, the flow of stress is interfered with, causing high stress gradients where the maximum stress and strain may greatly exceed the average or nominal values based on simple calculations. Contact stresses, as discussed in Chap. 14, also exhibit, near the point of contact, high stress gradients, which subside quickly as one moves away from the contact are…
