Solution 1.2-9 Loading crane with girder and cable SECTION 1.2 Normal Stress and Strain 7 Problem 1.2-9 A loading crane consisting of a steel girder ABC supported by a cable BD is subjected to a load P (see figure). The cable has an effective cross-sectional area A 5 0.471 in 2 . The dimensions of the crane are H 5 9 ft, L 1 5 12 ft, and L 2 5 4 ft. (a) If the load P 5 9000 lb, what is the average tensile stress in the cable? (b) If the cable stretches by 0.382 in., what is the average strain?
