Determine the stress at points A and B, (a) for the loading shown, (b) if the 60 KN loads are applied at
points 2 and 3 are removed, and (c
NORMAL STRAIN UNDER AXIAL LOADING
Let us consider a rod BC, of length L and uniform
cross-sectional area A, which is
suspended from B . If we apply a load P to end C,
the rod elongates.
Plotting the magnitude P of the load against the
Chapter 1 (Stress)
Two solid cylindrical rods AB and BC are welded together at B and loaded as shown
in Figure 1. Determine the average normal stress at the midsection of (a) rod AB, (b)
Each of the four vertical
For the beam and loading shown in figure 1, consider section n-n and determine (a) the largest
shearing stress in that section, (b) the shearing stress at point a.
For the beam and loading shown in figure 2, consider section
