Two strain gages are placed at point C, which also is at the midheight of the beam. Gage A measures the strain in the horizontal direction and gage B measures the strain at an angle b = 60° to the horizontal. The measured strains are Pa 125 * 10 6 375 * 10 6. and Pb Determine the force P and the angle a, assuming the material is steel with E 200 GPa and 1/3. h C a P b B b A C Probs. 7.7-18 and 7.7-19 Solution 7.7-18 Cantilever beam (plane stress) HOOKE’S LAW Beam loaded by a force P acting at an angle a.
