(Disregard friction between the plates.) P Column End plates for brace Gusset plate Brace Problem 1.6-2 Three steel plates, each 16 mm thick, are joined by two 20-mm diameter rivets as shown in the figure. (a) If the load P 5 50 kN, what is the largest bearing stress acting on the rivets? (b) If the ultimate shear stress for the rivets is 180 MPa, what force P ult is required to cause the rivets to fail in shear? (Disregard friction between the plates.)
