Von Mises Stress Formula
The following equation is used to calculate the von mises stress acting on an object.
V = √(σx^2 - (σx * σy) + σy^2 + (3 *txy^2))
- Where V is the Von Mises Stress
- σx is the normal stress x component
- σy is the normal Stress y component
- τxy is the Shear Stress
Von Mises Stress Definitoin
A von Mises stress is a measure of the total overall stress acting on material included normal stress in the x and y direction as well as the shear stress.
Von Mises Stress Example
How to calculate Von Mises stress?
- First, calculate the normal stresses.
Calculate the normal stress in the x and y planes.
- Next, determine the shear stress.
Determine the total shear stress.
- Finally, calculate Von Mises stress.
Calculate the Von Mises stress using the formula above.
Von Mises stress is used to determine if a ductile metal will yield when subjected to complex loading conditions. These complex loading conditions include x and y components of stress along with shear stress.
Von Mises stress is calculated using the 3 components of stress, x, y, and shear, and the formula above.
Von mises stress was first proposed in 1904 by Huber and later popularized by von Mises.
