Failure analysis in designing of a structure, Civil Engineering

Modes of failure

• For safe design, a knowledge of the possible modes of failure is also necessary, e.g. failure of the structure could occur due to

- Tensile fracture due to excessive load in the rod BC

- Buckling of the member AB due to compressive loads

- Excessive deformation of the structure or any of its members

-Fatigue failure due to repeated loading.  (Such a failure could occur at a weld or other stress raising feature)

- Fast fracture i.e. fast propagation of a crack from a flaw in the structure
