H.W. 4 (CE3400-1) 1. A member with initial length 10 ft. is elongated by 0.03 ft. What is the strain of this member? 003 . 0 10 03 . 0 = = = L L ε 2. The allowable strain for a building column is 0.01%. If the initial height of the building is 30 ft, what is the allowable deformation of this column? ft x L L a 003 . 30 0001 . 0 = = = 3. There are two columns. Column A is 50 ft long, and column B is 25 ft long. Both
