2010 - 2011 SPRING SEMESTER AEE 264 Mechanics of Materials Sec(01) HOMEWORK #1 Given: 3 March 2011 Due: 10 March 2011 until 14:40 1. Knowing that the central portion of the link BD has a uniform cross- sectional area of 800 mm 2 , determine the magnitude of the load P for which the normal stress in that portion of BD is 50 MPa. 2. Members AB and BC of the truss shown are made of the same alloy. It is known that a 20-mm-square bar of the same alloy was tested to failure and that an ultimate load of 120 kN was recorded. If a factor of safety of 3.2 is to be achieved for both bars, determine the required cross-sectional area of (a) bar AB , ( b ) bar AC. 3. Each of the links AB and CD is made of aluminum (E = 75GPa) and has a cross-sectional area of 125 mm 2 . Knowing that they support the rigid member BC, determine the deflection of

Considering only axial deformations, determine the stress in the aluminum shell when the temperature reaches 180°C. 5. In many situations physical constraints prevent strain from occurring in a given direction, for example ε z = 0 in the case shown, where longitudinal movement of the long prism is prevented at every point. Plane sections perpendicular to the longitudinal axis remain plane and the same distance apart. Show that for this situation, which is known as plane strain , we can express σ z , ε x , and ε y as follows: ± ² ³´ µ ¶ · ¸ ¹ µ ² º » ¼´º ½ ³ ¾ ¸ µ ½ ³´º ¶ ³¸ · ¿ ¹ · ² º » ¼´º ½ ³ ¾ ¸ · ½ ³´º ¶ ³¸ µ ¿...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
