Eccentric Axial Loads Problem 5.12-12 A circular post and a rectangular post are each compressed by loads that produce a resultant force P acting at the edge of the cross section (see figure). The diameter of the circular post and the depth of the rectangular post are the same. (a) For what width b of the rectangular post will the maximum tensile stresses be the same in both posts? (b) Under the conditions described in part (a), which post has the larger compressive stress?
