Unformatted text preview: ng of Multiple Sections ► In the case where we have the force and area varying continuously along the length, we must write the axial deformation equation in integral form. Axial Loading Sign Convention Axial Loading Sign Convention ► In general, whenever a member is subjected to a tension force, the axial displacement is considered positive (elongation). ► At times a relative displacement with respect to a point must be considered. In this case we write δA/B (the displacement of of end A relative to end B) . Example Example ► Prob. 4­4. The copper shaft is subjected to the following axial loads. Determine the displacement of end A w.r.t. end D given the diameters are dAB = 0.75in., dCD = 1.00in., and Ecu = 18,000 ksi. Example Example ► Prob. 4­4. The copper shaft is subjected to the following axial loads...
