CHAPTER 1 Stress
Sample Problems
1.)
The homogeneous bar
AB weighing 1800 lb. is
supported at either end
by a steel cable.
Calculate the smallest
safe area of each cable
if the working stress is
18 000 psi for steel.
Solution:

2.)
The homogeneous
6000-lb bar ABC is
supported by a pin at C
and a cable that runs
from A to B around the
frictionless pulley at
D. Find the stress in
the cable if its
diameter is 0.6 in.

Solution:

3.)
The uniform 300-lb bar AB
carries a 500-lb vertical force
at A. The bar is supported by a
pin at B and the 0:5-in.
diameter cable CD. Find the
stress in the cable.

Solution:

CHAPTER 2
Sample Problems

Strain

1.)
The rigid bar AB
is supported by two
rods made of the same
material. If the bar
is horizontal before
the load P is
applied, find the distance x that locates the
position where P must act if the bar is to remain
horizontal. Neglect the weight of bar AB.
Solution:

2.)
The rigid bars ABC
and CD are supported
by pins at A and D and
by a steel rod at B.
There is a roller
connection between the
bars at C. Compute the
vertical displacement
of point C caused by the 50-kN load.
Solution:

3.)
A
uniform
bar of length L, cross-sectional area A, and mass
density r is suspended vertically from one end. (a)
Show that the elongation of the bar is d
rgL2=2E, where g is the gravitational
acceleration and E is the modulus of elasticity.
(b) If the mass of the bar is M, show that d
MgL=2EA.
Solution:

CHAPTER 3 Torsion

Sample Problems
1.)
The steel shaft, 3 ft
long and 4 in. in diameter,
carries the end torque of
15 kip _ ft. Determine (a)
the maximum shear stress in
the shaft; and (b) the
angle of twist of the
shaft. Use G 12 _ 106 psi
for steel.
Solution:

2.)
The 16-ft solid steel shaft is
twisted through 4_. If the maximum
shear stress is 8000 psi, determine
the diameter d of the shaft. Use G
12 _ 106 psi for steel.
Solution:

3.)
The
compound
shaft consists of bronze and steel segments, both

having 120-mm diameters. If


the torque T causes a
maximum shear stress of 100
MPa in the bronze segment,
determine the angle of
rotation of the free end.
Use G 83 GPa for steel
and G 35 GPa for bronze.
Solution:

CHAPTER 4 Shear and Moment in Beams


Sample Problems

1.)
For the beam
shown, derive the
expressions for V and
M, and draw the shear
force and bending
moment diagrams.
Neglect the weight of
the beam.
Solution:

2.)
For the beam shown,
derive the expressions
for V and M, and draw
the shear force and
bending moment diagrams.
Neglect the weight of
the beam.

Solution:

3.)
Construct the shear force and bending moment
diagrams for the beam shown by the area method.
Neglect the weight of the beam.

Solution:
