Problem 2.6-18 A tension member is to be constructed of two pieces of plastic glued along plane pq (see figure). For purposes of cutting and gluing, the angle u must be between 25° and 45°. The allowable stresses on the glued joint in tension and shear are 5.0 MPa and 3.0 MPa, respectively. (a) Determine the angle u so that the bar will carry the largest load P . (Assume that the strength of the glued joint controls the design.) (b) Determine the maximum allowable load P max if the cross-sectional area of the bar is 225 mm 2 .
