MEC2025F Mechanics of Solids Tutorial 3 3 March 2016 See the recommended reading list in course outline for the sources of the problems. 1 Mechanical Properties 1. The hollow tube is subjected to an axial force of 40 kN. If the tube elongates 3 mm and its circumference decreases 0 . 09 mm, determine the modulus of elasticity, Pois- son’s ratio, and the shear modulus of the tube’s material. The material behaves elas- tically. 2. An acetal polymer block is fixed to the rigid plates at its top and bottom surfaces. If the top plate displaces 2 mm horizontally when it is subjected to a horizontal force P = 2 kN, determine the shear modulus of the polymer. The width of the block is 100 mm. Assume that the polymer is linearly elastic and use small angle analysis. 3. The rigid bar rests in the horizontal posi- tion on two aluminum cylinders having the unloaded lengths shown. If each cylinder has a diameter of 30 mm. determine the placement x of the applied 80 kN load so that the beam remains horizontal. What

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
