u C x = 0 . 007 ; u C y = 0 . 002 ; u D x = 0 . 002 ; u D y = 0 . 004 . so the strains are ǫ x = u D x u A x L AD = 0 . 002 + 0 . 001 15 = 66 . 7 × 10 6 . ǫ y = u B y u A y L AB = 0 . 004 0 . 002 20 = 300 × 10 6 . γ xy = u D y u A y L AD + u B x u A x L AB = 0 . 004 0 . 002 15 + 0 . 006 + 0 . 001 20 = 116 . 7 × 10 6 . 2
2. Figure 2 shows a rigid rectangular block which is attached to a rigid foundation through two (deformable) rubber blocks. The 5 kN force shown causes the rigid block to move downwards a distance 1.8 mm. Find the average shear strain γ and the average shear stress τ in each of the rubber blocks and hence estimate the shear modulus G for the rubber. rigid rigid rigid rubber 30 30 100 70 5 kN all dimensions in mm Figure 2 Solution Figure 2.1(a) shows the deformation of the rubber, from which we deduce that the shear strain is γ = 1 . 8 30 = 0 . 06 . 30 1.8 5 kN V V (a) (b) Figure 2.1 3

To find the stress in the rubber, we must cut through the rubber ( and only the rubber ), so as to leave an object that is not connected to the rest of the world. This means we have to cut through the rubber on both sides, leaving the free-body diagram of Figure 2.1(b), from which

### What students are saying

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
