Section 1.4: Analysis and Design In this FBD, we know that rod BC has a diameter of 20”. We also know the force of the rod to be 50 kN, F BC . However, that is just basic Statics. Now we use what we know about stress to see if the rod can actually support this system. We are now given new information. We are told rod BC is made of steel and has a maximum allowable stress, σ all = 165 MPa. P = F BC = +50 kN = 50 x 10 A= = = 314 x 10 σ = 159 x 10

Unformatted text preview: Pa = 159 MPa Therefore, σ > σ all , so Rod BC can safely support the subjected load. That example was an Analysis example; this can also be applied to a design problem. Here, we have rod BC that is made up of aluminum. We are given σ all = 100 MPa. The same force, P, is used. What must the diameter of the rod be for it to hold the given load? Therefore, a 26” diameter Aluminum rod will be sufficient to hold F BC...

    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.
