(a) What is the maximum normal stress max in the bar? (b) What is the maximum shear stress max? (c) Draw a stress element oriented at 45° to the axis of the bar and show all stresses acting on the faces of this element. d = 12 mm P P = 9.5 kN Solution 2.6-6 Steel bar in tension (b) MAXIMUM SHEAR STRESS The maximum shear stress is on a 45° plane and equals x/2. P tmax 9.5 kN (a) MAXIMUM NORMAL STRESS sx max P A 9.5 kN p (12 mm)2 4 84.0 MPa sx 2 ; 42.0 MPa (c) STRESS ELEMENT AT 45° 84.0 MPa ; NOTE: All stresses have units of MPa. Problem 2.6-7 During a tension test of a mild-steel specimen (see figure), the extensometer shows an elongation of 0.00120 in. with a gage length of 2 in. Assume that the steel is stressed below the proportional limit and that the modulus of elasticity E 30 106 psi. (a) What is the maximum normal stress max in the specimen? (b) What is the maximum shear stress max? (c) Draw a stress element oriented at an angle of 45° to the axis of the bar and show all stresses acting on the faces of this element. 2 in. T T ...
