SECTION 5.4 Longitudinal Strains in Beams 287 Problem 5.4-5 A thin strip of steel of length L 20 in. and thickness t 0.2 in. is bent by couples M 0 (see figure). The deflection at the midpoint of the strip (measured from a line joining its end points) is found to be 0.25 in. Determine the longitudinal normal strain at the top surface of the strip. Solution 5.4-5 Thin strip of steel t M 0 M 0 L 2 L 2 L 20 in. t 0.2 in. 0.25 in. The deflection curve is very flat (note that L / 80) and therefore is a very small angle. For small angles, ( is in radians) cos (1 cos ) Substitute numerical values ( inches): Solve numerically: 200.0 in. N ORMAL STRAIN

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
