MAE 472, Spring 2010 Homework #1 Due 1/28/10 Problem 1 You are asked to design a tension strut for an aircraft which will survive 6,000 flights (using a factor of safety of 1.6). A typical loading on the part during a single flight is given below: The S-N diagram for aluminum ### # is given below. As a first attempt you design a strut of this material with a cross-sectional area = 0.1 mm 2 . Does this meet the design criteria? 1.2 1500 MPa U m S Aluminum ####

Unformatted text preview: Using the maximum-distortion-energy criterion, determine whether yield will occur when (a) = 200 MPa, (b) = 240 MPa, (c) = 280 MPa. For each stress level, if yield does not occur, determine the corresponding factor of safety. Problem 3 The cast-aluminum rod shown is made of an alloy for which UT = 70 Mpa and UC = 175 MPa. Knowing that the magnitude T of the applied torques is slowly increased and using the maximum normal stress criterion, determine the shearing stress that should be expected at rupture....
