Unformatted text preview: The total area of the concrete is 200 in^2, and the total area of the steel is 18 in^2. Determine the maximum allowed axial load on the column. Problem 3) For the bar shown below, determine the maximum temperature to which the bar can be raised before yielding the steel. The bar was installed at a temperature of 70 degrees F, at which time the bar exactly fit between the two walls. The yield stress of the bar is 30 ksi, and the thermal coefficient of expansion is 6.5x10E-6 in/in/degree F. The bar is 40 inches long, and has an E = 30xE10+6 psi and a G = 10.5xE+6 psi....
