SECTION 2.6 Stresses on Inclined Sections 179 Problem 2.6-4 A brass wire of diameter d ± 2.42 mm is stretched tightly between rigid supports so that the tensile force is T ± 98 N (see figure). The coefficient of thermal expansion for the wire is 19.5 ²³ 10 -6 /°C and the modulus of elasticity is E = 110 GPa (a) What is the maximum permissible temperature drop ´ T if the allowable shear stress in the wire is 60 MPa? (b) At what temperature changes does the wire go slack? Problem 2.6-3 A standard brick (dimensions 8 in. ² 4 in. ² 2.5 in.) is compressed lengthwise by a force P , as shown in the figure. If the ultimate shear stress for brick is
