ENFD 375 – BASIC STRENGTH OF MATERIALS QUIZ #3 Given: A steel column is fixed at the top and bottom and has a 30k force applied 10 ft from the top. It has an area of 10 in 2 and an elastic modulus of 30000 ksi. Find the reactions, R A and R C . DO NOT ASSUME the arrows are correct. Remove the support from point A: Now, how much does R A need to pull UP? (The arrow is wrong is the diagram.) Now by equilibrium, R C = 10 k PL AE δ= () ( ) 2 30 20 0.002 10 30000 PL AE kf t ft in ksi δ = = =↓ ( ) 2 30 0.002 10 30000 20 A A PL AE Rf t ft in ksi Rk = = =↑ 03 0 2 0 10 yc c Fk k R +↑Σ = =− + +

This makes sense. Stiffness = AE/L. The column has a uniform EA, thus the only difference in stiffness is the length L.
