The dimensions of the poles and sign are h 1 5 20 ft, h 2 5 5 ft, and b 5 10 ft. To prevent buckling of the walls of the poles, the thickness t is specified as one-tenth the outside diameter d . (a) Determine the minimum required diameter of the poles based upon an allowable bending stress of 7500 psi in the aluminum. (b) Determine the minimum required diameter based upon an allowable shear stress of 2000 psi. d t = b h 2 h 1 Wind load d 10 A-PDF Split DEMO : Purchase from www.A-PDF.com to remove the watermark...
