± MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS 02139 2.002 MECHANICS AND MATERIALS II SOLUTIONS FOR HOMEWORK NO. 2 Problem 1 (15 points) The axial stiffness of the structure is: F x σ xx A A k axial = = = E (1) δ x ± xx L L where A is the area of the cross section and L is the length of the beam. The bending stiffness is defined as: F y δ k bending = , (2) y where F y is the concentrated tip load, and δ y is the related tip deflection. According to the beam theory, we know that δ y = F y L 3 . Thus, the bending stiffness is: 3 EI F y = F y 3 EI k bending = δ y F y L 3 = L 3 . (3) 3 EI Combining Eq.1 and Eq.3, the ratio of a slender cantilever’s bending stiffness to its axial stiffness is: 3 EI k bending = L 3 3 I/A =3( l 2 ) 2 = (4) E A L 2 L k axial L where l 2 I/A .S in c e L ± l 2 , we find the above ratio is extremely small. For a solid circular cross-section beam with diameter d ,we have : πd 4 I = (5) 64 and πd 2 A = (6) 4 Substitution of the A and I into Eq. 4, we have k bending 3 I/A 3 d ) 2 = = ( (7) k axial L 2 16 L Problem 2 (45 points) Part A: No forces and moments are applied to the beam. And at any x ,0 <x <l ,wehave : N = F x = σ xx
