Problem 2.3-4 A rectangular bar of length L has a slot in the middle half of its length (see figure). The bar has width b , thickness t , and modulus of elasticity E . The slot has width b /4. (a) Obtain a formula for the elongation d of the bar due to the axial loads P . (b) Calculate the elongation of the bar if the material is high-strength steel, the axial stress in the middle region is 160 MPa, the length is 750 mm, and the modulus of elasticity is 210 GPa.
