1 MAE157 – Lightweight structures (Winter 09) Homework Assignment #6 Due in the drop box by 1pm on Friday, March 6, 2009 Solve the four following problems. For each problem, provide a detailed explanation of all the steps involved. Problem 1 An Aluminum cantilever beam with a non-symmetric T cross section is loaded with a distributed line load as shown in the sketch below. Model the problem using ABAQUS as we did in class, and plot the following: (a) normal stress distribution ! z on the top face (at the intersection of flange and web) as a function of z (b) shear stress distribution along the flange and the web at the cross-section z=0.5m. Compare the numerical answer with the analytical results we have derived in class.

L = 1 m ; w = 1000 N / m ; h = 10 cm ; t = 3 mm ; E = 70 GPa ; G = 27 GPa ; = 0.3 Problem 2 An Aluminum cantilever beam with a square box cross section is loaded with a concentrated load as shown in the sketch below. Model the problem using ABAQUS, and plot the following: (c) normal stress distribution z on the center-point of the top face as a function of z 2 (d) shear stress distribution along the two flanges and the two webs at the cross-section z=0.5m. Compare the numerical answer with the analytical results we have derived in class. Attach an image of the deformed shape with the Mises stress contour. E = 70 GPa ; G = 27 GPa ; ! = 0.3...

### 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.
