Strength of Materials involves a wide range of formulas and equations that are used to analyze and design structures and mechanical components. Here is a formula list covering some of the fundamental concepts in Strength of Materials:

1.
Stress and Strain:

·
Normal Stress (Tensile/Compressive): σ = P / A

·
Shear Stress: τ = V / A

·
Normal Strain: ε = ΔL / L

·
Shear Strain: γ = Δx / h

2.
Hooke's Law:

·
σ = E × ε (Within the elastic limit)

3.
Modulus of Elasticity (Young's Modulus):

·
E = σ / ε

4.
Poisson's Ratio:

·
ν = -ε_lateral / ε_longitudinal

5.
Bending Stress and Deflection for a Beam:

·
Bending Stress (in a rectangular beam): σ = (M
* c) / I

·
Bending Deflection (for a simply supported
beam with a concentrated load at the center): δ = (5 * P * L^3) / (384 * E * I)

6.
Moment of Inertia (for a rectangular beam):

·
I = (b * h^3) / 12

7.
Shear Stress and Shear Strain in Circular
Shaft (Torsion):

·
Shear Stress: τ = (T * r) / J

·
Shear Strain: γ = (r * φ) / L

8.
Torsional Constant (Polar Moment of Inertia):

·
J = (π * d^4) / 32 (for a solid circular
shaft)

9.
Combined Stresses:

·
Principal Stresses: σ_1, σ_2 = (σ_x + σ_y) / 2
± sqrt((σ_x - σ_y)^2 + 4τ_xy^2) / 2

·
Maximum Shear Stress: τ_max = (σ_x - σ_y) / 2
± sqrt((σ_x - σ_y)^2 + 4τ_xy^2) / 2

10.
Strain Energy (U) due to Axial Load:

·
U = (P^2 * L) / (2 * A * E)

11.
Strain Energy (U) due to Bending Moment:

·
U = (M^2 * L) / (2 * E * I)

12.
Strain Energy (U) due to Torsional Moment:

·
U = (T^2 * L) / (2 * G * J)

13.
Euler's Buckling Formula for Columns:

·
Critical Buckling Load: P_cr = (π^2 * E * I) /
(K * L)^2 (where K is the effective length factor)

14.
Factor of Safety (FoS):

·
FoS = Allowable Stress / Maximum Stress

These are just some of the essential formulas used in Strength of
Materials. Depending on the complexity of the problem and the specific
application, additional formulas and concepts may be required for a
comprehensive analysis. It's crucial to understand the assumptions and limitations
associated with each formula and apply them appropriately to ensure accurate
results in engineering design and analysis.
