Each rod has cross-sectional area A and the material is elastoplastic with yield stress Y. Determine the plastic load PP. a a P Solution 2.12-4 Beam supported by four rods F YA Sum forces in the vertical direction and solve for the load: At the plastic load, all four rods are stressed to the yield stress.
