A composite bar consists of two base materials with 25 rigid beams embedded along its length. A coefficient of
thermal expansion is defined for only the rigid beams. Compare the stresses resulting in both solid composite
materials when a temperature is applied. Figure 240.1 Thermal Expansion of Composite Bar Material Properties
