MCE311 Homework # 3 Due on Wed. Oct 26 th , 2011. Question 1 : A strip of cast iron is 8in. long and has a cross section of 1.0 by 1/16 in. It is subject to an axial load of 1000lb. Two strain gauges are attached to the surface, one in the axial direction and the other in the transverse direction. The axial gauge indicates a strain of 1143 and the transverse gage indicates an strain of -286 . Estimate the Modulus of elasticity and Poison’s ratio for this material. Solution: We first find the axial stress:  F A psi // ( ./ ) , 1000 10 1 16 16 000 Rearranging Eq. 8.1: E psi a ( ) . 16000 1143 10 1 40 10 67 Rearranging Eq. 8.6:    ta / ( ) /. 286 1143 025 Question 2 : A strain gage has a resistance of 120 and a gage factor of 2.09. If it is used in a quarter bridge with the other resistors being 120 and with a supply voltage of 2 V, what will the stain is
