704 CHAPTER 8 Applications of Plane Stress Problem 8.5-23 Determine the maximum tensile, compressive, and shear stresses acting on the cross section of the tube at point A of the hitch bicycle rack shown in the figure. The rack is made up of 2 in. ± 2 in. steel tubing which is 1/8 in. thick. Assume that the weight of each of four bicycles is distributed evenly between the two support arms so that the rack can be represented as a cantilever beam ( ABCDEF ) in the x-y plane. The overall weight of the rack alone is W ² 60 lb. directed through C , and the weight of each bicycle is B ² 30 lb. M AX . TENSILE STRESS
