Mello/Georgia Tech Aerospace 20 EXAMPLE 2- 9: (cont.) SOLUTION (CONT.): ②  ESTABLISH COMPATIBILITY CONDITION RotaOng the turnbuckle shortens the overall cable Length by an amount δ2 where: 1 = 2np Tensile forces develop and stretch the cables by δ2 where: Ps L = 2 E s As The Cu tube is compressed and shortens by amount δ3 where: Pc L 3= E c Ac COMPATIBILITY EQUATION: The change in length of the copper tube must match the net shortening distance of the cables, i.e., 2np = 3= 1 2 1/17/13 P sL Pc L = As E s E c Ac M.
