high-strength concrete each having an effective cross-sectional area
A 40,000 mm2 and length L 2 m (see figure). Before the load
P is applied, the middle post is shorter than the others by an amount

Determine the maximum allowable load Pallow if the allowable
compressive stress in the concrete is allow 20 MPa.
