SECTION 7.3 Principal Stresses and Maximum Shear Stresses 583 Problem 7.3-2 An element in plane stress is subjected to stresses s x ± 100 MPa, s y ± 80 MPa, and t xy ± 28 MPa (see the figure for Problem 7.2-2). Determine the principal stresses and show them on a sketch of a properly oriented element. Solution 7.3-2 P RINCIPAL STRESSES u p 2 ± u p 1 + 90° u p 2 ± 125.17° u p 1 ± 35.2° u p 1 ± atan a 2 t xy s x ² s y b 2 s x ± 100 MPa s y ± 80 MPa t xy ± 28 MPa s 2 ± 60 MPa ; s 1 ± 120 MPa ; s 2 ± s x + s y 2 + s x ² s y 2 cos 1 2 u p 2 2 + t xy sin 1 2 u p 2 2 s 1 ± s x + s y 2 + s x ² s y 2 cos 1 2 u p 1 2 + t xy sin 1 2 u p 1 2 Problem 7.3-3 An element in plane stress is subjected to stresses s x ±² 5700 psi, s y ±² 2300 psi, and t xy ± 2500 psi (see the figure for Problem 7.2-3).

Also, shear stresses of magnitude 54 MPa act in the directions shown (see the figure for Problem 7.2-4). Determine the principal stresses and show them on a sketch of a properly oriented element. 07Ch07.qxd 9/27/08 1:18 PM Page 583...
