AE 362 Aerospace Structures, Spring 2010-2011 HW # 4 (due May 2 nd Monday) 1- The two cell box beam given below is subjected to a CW torque of 4000 Nm and vertical shear force of 6000 N. i) Using the direct approach, form the linear system of equations for the shear flows and carry out the solution for the shear flows by a computer package such as Matlab, Mathcad or Excel. ii) Determine the angle of twist per unit length. iii) Determine the shear center location by carrying out solution of linear system of equations Notes: In class we solved the force and torque problems separately. In this problem you are asked to perform a single solution which includes both load cases. You can check your results by superimposing the results obtained in class due to torque and shear force.

Unformatted text preview: In shear center calculations, you should only consider the vertical shear force and exclude the effect of the torque. Submit your codes together with your results. Given: A stiffener =4 cm 2 G=30 Gpa q 1 q 2 q 3 q 4 q 5 q 7 q 6 20 cm 15 cm 25 cm T=4000 Nm F=6000 N 2-Calculated the shear flow distribution and stringer loads at the mid-span of the tapered box beam given below. Note that the bottom part of the box beam does not have taper. Note: Before attempting to solve this problem, go over the note linked together with the homework Given: All dimensions are in cm A stringer = 5 cm 2 for each stringer F=8000 N F=8000 N 10 40 15 30 250...

### 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.
