Unformatted text preview: 5.68 A 100-mm-wide by 8-mm-thick steel
bar is transmitting an axial tensile load of
3,000 N. After the load is applied, a 4mm-diameter hole is drilled through the
bar, as shown in Fig. P5.68. The hole is
centered in the bar.
(a) Determine the stress at point A (on the
edge of the hole) in the bar before and
after the hole is drilled.
(b) Does the axial stress at point B on the
edge of the bar increase or decrease as the
hole is drilled? Explain. Comment [TAP1]: (a) σA = 3.75 MPa
(before); σA = 11.29 MPa (after) (b) σB decreases Fig. P5.68 Solution
(a) Stress at point A:
Before hole is drilled:
σA = =
= 3.75 MPa
A (100 mm)(8 mm) After hole is drilled:
D 100 mm σA = Ans. ∴ K ≅ 2.89 PK
= 11.29 MPa
Anet (100 mm − 4 mm)(8 mm) (b) Stress at point B:
The axial stress at point B decreases. Since the average stress changes very little with the
introduction of the small hole and since the stress at A is larger than the average stress, the axial
stress far from the hole must be less than the average stress. Ans. ...
