ENG104: Mechanics of Materials HW # 3, Due Oct. 17th, 2016, by 2pm, in HW box 104, second floor, Ghausi Hall. 1. The elastic portion of the stress-strain diagram for a steel alloy is shown in Figure 1. The specimen from which it was obtained had an original diameter of 13 mm and a gauge length of 50 mm. If a load of P = 20 kN is applied to the specimen, determine its diameter and gauge length. Take ν = 0.4. Figure 1 2. A steel wire is connected to a wall to suspend a rigid beam. The A-36 steel wire AB , shown in Figure 2, has a cross-sectional area of 10 mm 2 and is not stretched when θ = 45 . 0 . Determine the applied load P needed to cause θ = 44 . 9 . Also, calculate the stress and strain in the wire. Hint: The average mechanical properties of typical engineering materials can be found at the inside back cover of the textbook. Figure 2 1

    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.
