The total tension force on the bar was 17.5 kips. Determine the following properties of the material: (a) the modulus of elasticity. (b) Poissons ratio. (c) the proportional limit. Solution (a) The bar cross-sectional area is 2 2 2 (0.75 in.) 0.441786 in. 4 4 A D = = = and thus, the normal stress corresponding to the 17.5-kip force is 2 17.5 kips 39.611897 ksi 0.441786 in. = = The strain in the bar is 0.0325 in. 0.002708 in./in. 12 in. e L = = = The modulus of elasticity is therefore 39.611897 ksi 14,626 ksi 14,630 ksi 0.002708 in./in. E = = = = Ans. (b) The longitudinal strain in the bar was calculated previously as long 0.002708 in./in. = The lateral strain can be determined from the reduction of the diameter: lat 0.0006 in. 0.000800 in./in. 0.75 in. D D = = = Poissons ratio for this specimen is therefore lat long 0.000800 in./in. 0.295421 0.295 0.002708 in./in. = = = = Ans. (c) Based on the problem statement, the stress in the bar is equal to the proportional limit; therefore, 39.6 ksi PL = Ans.

The bar is 1.6-m long. If Poissons ratio is 0.32 for the material, determine: (a) the modulus of elasticity. (b) the proportional limit (c) the change in each lateral dimension. Solution (a) The bar cross-sectional area is 2 (20 mm)(75 mm) 1,500 mm A = = and thus, the normal stress corresponding to the 480-kN axial load is 2 (480 kN)(1,000 N/kN) 320 MPa 1,500 mm = = The strain in the bar is 6.8 mm 0.004250 mm/mm (1.6 m)(1,000 mm/m) e L = = = The modulus of elasticity is therefore 320 MPa 75,294 MPa 75.3 GPa 0.004250 mm/mm E = = = = Ans....
