SECTION 8.5 Combined Loadings 687 Problem 8.5-11 An L-shaped bracket lying in a horizontal plane supports a load P 150 lb (see figure). The bracket has a hollow rectangular cross section with thickness t 0.125 in. and outer dimensions b 2.0 in. and h 3.5 in. The centerline lengths of the arms are b 1 20 in. and b 2 30 in. Considering only the load P , calculate the maximum tensile stress s t , maximum compressive stress s c , and maximum shear stress t max at point A , which is located on the top of the bracket at the support. P = 150 lb A b 1 = 20 in. b 2 = 30 in. h = 3.5 in. b = 2.0 in. t = 0.125 in. Solution 8.5-11 L-shaped bracket P 150 lb b 1 20 in. b 2 30 in. t 0.125 in. h 3.5 in. b 2.0 in.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
