Material Selection in Mechanical Design.xls



Consider material properties to determine optimum materials for:

  • stiffness-limited design, consider specific stiffness ratios (E/ρ).
  • strength-limited design, consider specific strength ratio (σy/ρ).
    The following types of loading are considered:
  • pure tension.
  • flat plate bending.
  • cantilever bending of hollow tubes with a fixed outer radius to thickness ratio.
    Materials optimised by considering:
  • minimum mass.
  • minimum cost.
