700 CHAPTER 8 Applications of Plane Stress Problem 8.5-21 A moveable steel stand supports an automobile engine weighing W ± 750 lb as shown in figure part (a). The stand is constructed of 2.5 in. ² 2.5 in. ² 1/8 in. thick steel tubing. Once in position the stand is restrained by pin supports at B and C . Of interest are stresses at point A at the base of the vertical post; point A has coordinates ( x ± 1.25, y ± 0, z ± 1.25) (inches). Neglect the weight of the stand. (a) Initially, the engine weight acts in the ( ³ z ) direction through point Q which has coordinates (24, 0, 1.25); find the maximum tensile, compressive, and shear stresses at point A . (b) Repeat (a) assuming now that, during repair, the engine is rotated about its own longitudinal axis (which is parallel to
