(199 Courtesy of CRC Press, and used with permission. 1.050: Hydrostatics and Geostatics (HW#4) Due: October 3, 2007 MIT 1.050 (Engineering Mechanics I) Fall 2007 Instructor: Markus J. BUEHLER Team Building and Team Work: We strongly encourage you to form Homework teams of three students. Each team only submits one solution for correction. We expect true team work, i.e. one where everybody contributes equally to the result. This is testified by the team members signing at the end of the team copy a written declaration that "the undersigned have equally contributed to the homework". Ideally, each student will work first individually through the homework set. The team then meets and discusses questions, difficulties and solutions, and eventually, meets with TA or instructor. Important: Specify all resources you use for your solution. The following set of exercises is designed to train you in the use of continuum model for the evaluation of the stress distribution in hydrostatics and geostatics engineering problems. For each exercise, show us how you came to your answer and result. We highly encourage you to make drawings where appropriate. 1.
