1) Find the fourier series expansion for the following functions. In each case using MATLAB, plot the actual function and the fourier series expansion superoposed on the same figure for different values of n (n=1, n=5 and n = 20) a) f(x) = 1 = x -π < x <0 0<x<π

b) f(x) = x2/4 -π < x < π

2) A plane displacement field has componenst u = -a1(vx2 + y2) and v =2 a1xy where a1 is a constant. Determine the stresses and sketch them acting at the boundary of the region -a≤ x≤ a, -b≤ y≤ b.

3) Derive the equilibrium equations in terms of displacements for a plane stress case.

4) 5) 6) .

7) . 8) 9) .

10) where γ – specific weight .
