1.050: Beam Torsion & 1-D Elasticity (HW#8) Due: November 7, 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 the TA or the instructor. Important: Specify all resources you use for your solution. The following set of exercises is designed to familiarize you with the use of the elasticity model and of thermodynamics of reversible processes in Engineering Mechanics of truss systems, as well with the analysis of beam structures under combined bending moment and torsion. 1. Design of a Highway Sign : The sketch below shows a typical highway sign. The objective of this problem is to design the column (vertical beam element) holding the sign using a
