HOMEWORK PROBLEMS Week 5: Due Friday 14 October 1. Figure 1 shows an assembly for measuring the tensile strength of the wooden specimen AB . The specimen has thickness (perpendicular to the figure) of 10 mm and width d = 15 mm. If the wood fails in tension at a stress of 800 kPa, determine the force F at which the specimen will fail. If the wood also fails in shear (parallel to the grain) at a stress of 200 kPa, determine the minimum dimension h if shear failure is not to occur before tension failure. h d F F A B Figure 1 2. Components A and B in Figure 2 are both made of wood and are 3 8 inch thick in the direction perpendicular to the figure. If the wood fails at a shear stress of 1000 psi and we want to have a factor of safety of 3 against failure when B is loaded by an 800 lb force as shown, what is the minimum value for the dimension d ? 800 lb 25 o d A B Figure 2 1

A certain steel has a density of 7700 kg/m 3 and fails in uniaxial tension at a stress = 120 MPa. A 20 mm diameter cable made of this material is used to lower a cage of mass 1000 kg down a mine shaft from a winch at ground level. How far can the cage be lowered before the cable fails? 2 5.
