Unformatted text preview: minor principal stress of 5,000 psf. The major principal stress acts in the vertical direction. (a) Draw the Mohr's circle of stress and show the pole point (origin of planes). (b) Determine the maximum shear stress. (c) Determine the normal stress and shear stress on a plane that makes an angle of 60 with the minor principal plane 3. The shear and normal stresses on a . horizontal plane (a) Draw the Mohr's circle of stress and show the pole point (origin of planes). are 2,000 and 5,000 psf, respectively. The shear and normal stresses on another plane are 1,000 and 3,000 psf, respectively. (b) Find the principal stresses and show by means of a sketch the direction in which they act. (c) Find the shear and normal stresses on a plane making an angle of 35 with the major principal plane....
