Suppose an NX-size test cylinder with an L/D ratio of two has a Young’s modulus of 68.97 GPa, a Poisson’s ratio of 0.35, and fails in uniaxial compressive at 0.1% strain.
Find:Br>
1 The axial load (kN) and stress (unconfined compressive strength, MPa) at failure;
2 The relative displacement of the cylinder ends at failure (in mm).
