SECTION 1.7 Allowable Loads 39 Problem 1.7-4 An aluminum tube serving as a compression brace in the fuselage of a small airplane has the cross section shown in the figure. The outer diameter of the tube is d 25 mm and the wall thickness is t 2.5 mm. The yield stress for the aluminum is Y 270 MPa and the ultimate stress is U 310 MPa. Calculate the allowable compressive force P allow if the factors of safety with respect to the yield stress and the ultimate stress are 4 and 5, respectively. d t Solution 1.7-4 Aluminum tube in compression d 25 mm t 2.5 mm d 0 inner diameter 20 mm A tube 4 ( d 2 d 0 2 ) 176.7 mm 2 Y IELD STRESS Y 270 MPa F.S. 4 The ultimate stress governs.

Unformatted text preview: strength of the cast iron in compression is 50 ksi. The outer diameter of the piers is d 5 4.5 in. and the wall thickness is t 5 0.40 in. Using a factor of safety of 3.5 with respect to the ultimate strength, determine the total load P that may be supported by the pad. t d Solution 1.7-5 Cast iron piers in compression Four piers ± U 5 50 ksi n 5 3.5 s allow 5 s U n 5 50 ksi 3.5 5 14.29 ksi d 5 d 2 2 t 5 3.7in.
