The geometry of the pole is as shown. p * E = 29 x 106 Ib/in2 Column is of circular cross section PM Find the maximum possible P if column diameter is 6 inches. t = 0.25 in 30 ft Solution: A=%(D§ —Di2)=%62in2 —11.5 in2)=9.23 in2 _£ 4_ 4 _£ .4_ .4 _ .4 1—64(DO D,)-64(12m [1.5m )—|59.3m 7:251 _ n2 x29x10" 1b: ml x1593 in“ L3 12 in 2 Pm = 87,863 lb Pm = = 87,863 lb [2.0x30fx I, Columns: 3. What should be the minimum diameter of the cane, (1, such that the cane (length L and modulus E) will not buckle while supporting half of Charlie’s weight, 129. W/2 ? Assume pin-pin boundary conditions for the cane. Solution: For pin-pin boundary conditions 12 anI W WL’ Pa = 2 = — —) I = 2 L 2 27: E For a circular cross section m1“ 1 = — 64 Solving the above two equations for d yields d. = 32sz 2 7: E Columns: 5. Beam ACE is simply supported by a roller at A, a pin at B, and by column CE which is pinned to the beam at C and pinned externally at E. Find the load F that will buckle column CE. Beam ACB has stiffness EI and the column is of circular cross section and has stiffness 0.25EI. Note that for a simply supported beam of length L and stifiness EI loaded at midspan by load P, the deflection at P13 Solution: Let EB, 13 denote the modulus of elasticity and moment of inertia of beam ACB, respectively, and EC, I C the modulus of elasticity and moment of inertia of column CE. The beam is subjected to a force F-R, where R denotes the force in column CE.

Each rod of the truss is made of a material of elastic modulus E; has a circular cross section (radius of cross section R). All joints are pin joints. What is the critical force P at which one or both rods buckle (in terms of E, R, H)? For a circle of ItR‘ radius R, I = 4 -_-_-___________)._____ Solution Let F denote the force in each bar. Equilibrium of the joint, and since symmetry implies the two forces are equal: P= 2F~00360° =F .
