Foundations of engineering mechanics (ENGGIOIO) Tutorial 3: Introduction to Stress and Strain 1. A wood tension member with a 50 mm x 100 mm
rectangular cross section will be fabricated with an
inclined glue joint (45“ 5 ¢ 5 90”) at its mid
section, as shown in Figure 1. If the allowable
stresses for the glue are 5 MPa in tension and 3
MPa in shear, determine
(a) the optimum angle g6 for the joint; and
(b) the maximum safe load P for the member. Ans: (a) 59.00, (b) 34.0 kN. Figure 1 2. Rope BD has a strength of 100 kN. The pin at
A has a diameter of 10 mm and is made of
steel with an ultimate shearing stress of 350
MPa. Determine the safety factor for the
loading shown. Note that ABC is not a truss. Ans; rope 3.81,pin3.11. A ” .5bgmm 15kN ‘L 'l—TﬂMImII—I.‘ 701} Illlll —i Figure 2 3. Three plates are joined with a 12 mm diameter pin,
as shown in Figure 3. Determine the maximum load

the pin must be limited to 350 MPa;
(b) the maximum bearing stress between a plate and the pin must be limited to 650 MPa; m

and an aluminium collar. The pitch of the single l‘__‘5—o—‘_"_‘l
threaded bolt is 3 mm and its cross—sectional area is
600 m2. The crosssectional area of the collar is
900 mmz. The nut is brought to a snug position and
then given an additional 1/8 of a turn. Determine the
stresses in the aluminium collar and the steel bolt. Given E5 = 200 GPa, EAl = 70 GPa —

length L) is subjected to a tensile force F and
temperature change T, its elongation is: o = iL—+ OLLT
AE (b) A rigid bar is hanged by three of the trusses described
in part (a), as shown in Figure 6. Initially, the bar is
horizontal. The truss connected to joint C is then
subjected to a temperatlHe rise T , and a downward
force P is applied to the rigid bar. Is the problem
statically determinate? Determine the tensions in the
trusses and also the rotation of the rigid bar. Assume Figure 6
that the rotation is very small. Ans: TA = (7P—20LAET)/12, TB : (P +0LAET)/3, TC = (P—ZorAET)/12 Rotation = a T _ ___P_ in the clockwise direction ZAE 7. Determine the horizontal movement of point A in
Figure 7 due to a temperature drop of 450C.
Assume that member AE has an insigniﬁcant
coefﬁcient of thermal expansion. The coefﬁcients
of thermal expansion are 11.9x10'6 / 0C for the steel and 22.5 x 106 / 0C for the aluminum alloy. Ans: 1.27 mm id 300 mm >1 8. A 150 mm diameter by 200 mm long polymer (ED = 2.10 GPa) cylinder is attached to a 45 mm diameter by 400 mm long brass (E, = 100 GPa) rod by using the ﬂange type of connection shown in Figure 8. A 0.15 mm clearance exists between the parts as a result of machining error. If the bolts are inserted and tightened, determine _% _(_ 0.15 mm (a) the axial stresses produced in each of the
members; and (b) the ﬁnal position of the ﬂange—polymer
interface after assembly, with respect to the leﬁ
support. 400 mm Ans: (a) 1.074 MPa (T), 11.93 MPa (I);
