106 CHAPTER 2 Axially Loaded Members Problem 2.5-3 A rigid bar of weight W 5 750 lb hangs from three equally spaced wires, two of steel and one of aluminum (see figure). The diameter of the wires is 1 / 8 in. Before they were loaded, all three wires had the same length. What temperature increase D T in all three wires will result in the entire load being carried by the steel wires? (Assume E s 5 30 3 10 6 psi, a s 5 6.5 3 10 2 6 ±°F, and a a 5 12 3 10 2 6 ±°F.)
