CLARKSON UNIVERSITY Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering AE/ME 350 Aircraft Structural Analysis (Fall 2010) Homework #2 Solution 1. A structural member supports loads which produce, at a particular point, a direct tensile stress of 80 N/mm 2 and a shear stress of 45 N/mm 2 on the same plane. Calculate the values and directions of the principal stresses at the point and also the maximum shear stress, stating on which planes this will act. The principal stresses are obtained using σ x = 80 N/mm 2 , σ y = 0 (or vice versa), and xy = 45 N/mm 2 . 22 , 1 () 4 xy II I x y x y ss s + = - + t The direction of the principal stresses are defined by angle θ given by The first value of θ corresponds to σ I while the second value corresponds to σ II . The maximum shear stress, which acts on planes at 45 0 to principal planes, is given by 1
