Problem 2.5-18 A plastic cylinder is held snugly between a rigid plate and a foundation by two steel bolts (see figure). Determine the compressive stress p in the plastic when the nuts on the steel bolts are tightened by one complete turn. Data for the assembly are as follows: length L 200 mm, pitch of the bolt threads p 1.0 mm, modulus of elasticity for steel Es 200 GPa, modulus of elasticity for the plastic Ep 7.5 GPa, cross-sectional area of one bolt As 36.0 mm2, and cross-sectional area of the plastic cylinder Ap 960 mm2.
