HOMEWORK PROBLEMS Week 7: Due Friday 28 October 1. The assembly shown in Figure 1 comprises a hollow cylinder CD (seen in section) connected to a solid cylinder AB by a rigid disk at BC . The two cylinders are both made of steel for which E = 210 GPa and the hollow cylinder rests on a rigid support at D . If a force of 10 kN is applied at A , determine the average normal stress in AB and in CD and indicate whether these stresses are tensile or compressive. Determine also the distance that the end A moves downwards under the influence of the applied force. A B C D 20 4 60 120 70 10 kN hollow cylinder rigid disk solid cylinder Figure 1 Solution Clearly the cylinder AB is in tension and the tensile stress is σ AB = 10000 π × 20 2 / 4 = 31 . 83 N/mm 2 (MPa) . Figure 1.1 shows a free-body diagram of the body cut in the hollow cylinder CD , from which we conclude that F CD + 10 = 0 or F CD = - 10 kN . 1

In other words, the hollow cylinder CD is in compression. Its cross-sectional area is A CD = π (78 2 - 70 2 ) 4 = 930 mm 2 and the stress is therefore σ CD = - 10000 930 = - 10 . 75 MPa .

Since u B = u C , it then follows that u A = - 0 . 01819 - 0 . 00307 = - 0 . 02126 mm i.e. 0.02126 mm downwards. 2
2. In Figure 2, the two horizontal bars ABC and DEF are rigid and originally horizontal and the links CE and DG are 1/4 inch diameter steel rods. All the pin joints are frictionless. If a force of 5000 lbs is applied at B , find the vertical displacement of the pins at C,E and D . ( E steel = 30 × 10 3 ksi).

DEF . Summing moments about F , we obtain 2500 × 1 . 4 - F DG × 6 . 8 = 0 so F DG = 514 . 7 lb . The rod DG is also in tension and its extension, which is also the downward displacement of the point D is given by δ DG = F DG L DG EA DG = 514 . 7 × 24 30 × 10 6 × π × (1 / 4) 2 / 4 = 0 . 0084 in . Notice that we have converted all these quantities to lbs and inches to avoid confusion over units. Since the rigid link FED pivots about F , the downward displacement at E is therefore given by u E = 0 . 0084 × 1 . 4 6 . 8 = 0 . 00173 in . Finally, for link CE , we have u C - u E = F CE L CE EA CE = 2500 × 24 30 × 10 6 × π × (1 / 4) 2 / 4 = 0 . 0407 in . It follows that the downward displacement of
