Unformatted text preview: Exercise 2 (60 points) The structure below consists of a rigid beam hinged at A and supported at B by means of a flexible cable made of material X . A load P = 300 kN is applied as shown. Before the load is applied, a gap of 1 x 104 m exists between the rigid beam and the support at C , which is made of material Y . If E X = 250 x 10 9 N/m 2 , A X = 1 x 104 m 2 , E Y = 25 x 10 9 N/m 2 , and A Y = 60 x 104 m 2 , determine the axial stresses and deformations in materials X and Y . Bonus (10 points) Solve problem 2 if the temperature of the support at C increases 100 o C after the load P is applied, with Y = 10 x 106 / o C....
