Problem 5.4-5 A thin strip of steel of length and thickness is bent by couples (see figure). The deflection at the midpoint of the strip (measured from a line joining its end points) is found to be 0.20 in. Determine the longitudinal normal strain at the top surface of the strip. â M 0 t ± 0.2 in. L ± 20 in.
