1.16 Two 6 in. wide wooden boards are to
be joined by splice plates that will be fully
glued on the contact surfaces. The glue to
be used can safely provide a shear strength
of 120 psi. Determine the smallest
allowable length L that can be used for the
splice plates for an applied load of P =
10,000 lb. Note that a gap of 0.5 in. is
required between boards (1) and (2).
Fig. P1.16
Solution
Consider a FBD of board (2). The glue on the splice plates provides resistance to the 10,000 lb applied
load on both the top and bottom surfaces of board (2). Denoting the shear resistance on a glue surface as

In other words, each glue surface must be large enough so that 5,000 lb of shear resistance can be

Although we’ve discussed only board (2), the same rationale applies to board (1). For both boards (1)
and (2), the glue must be applied along a length of at least 6.9444 in. on both the top and bottom of the
boards in order to resist the 10,000 lb applied load.
The glue applied to boards (1) and (2) must be matched by glue applied to the splice plates. Therefore,
the splice plates must be at least 6.9444 in. + 6.9444 in. = 13.8889 in. long. However, we are told that a
0.5in. gap is required between boards (1) and (2); therefore, the splice plates must be 0.5in. longer.
Altogether, the length of the splice plates must be at least

2.2 A rigid steel bar is supported by three rods, as
shown in Fig. P2.2. There is no strain in the rods before

(a) the normal strain in rods (1).
(b) the normal strain in rods (1) if there is a 1/32in. gap
in the connections between the rigid bar and rods
(1) at joints A and C before the load is applied.
(c) the normal strain in rods (1) if there is a 1/32in. gap
in the connection between the rigid bar and rod (2)
at joint B before the load is applied.

6
2 2 2
(1, 080 10 )(75 in.) 0.0810 in. L

(1) are connected to the rigid bar at A and C, and again, perfect connections are assumed. The
deformation of rod (1) must be equal to the deflection of joint A (or C); thus,

strain in rods (1) can now be calculated as:

(b) We can assume that the bolted connection at B is
perfect; therefore, v

= 0.0810 in. (downward).
Further, the rigid bar must remain horizontal as it
deflects downward by virtue of symmetry.
Therefore, the deflection downward of joints A and C

2.3 A rigid steel bar is supported by three rods, as
shown in Fig. P2.3. There is no strain in the rods
before the load P is applied. After load P is
applied, the normal strain in rods (1) is 860 m/m.
Assume initial rod lengths of L

(a) the normal strain in rod (2).
(b) the normal strain in rod (2) if there is a 2
mm gap in the connections between the rigid
bar and rods (1) at joints A and C before the
load is applied.
(c) the normal strain in rod (2) if there is a 2

2.8 A steel cable is used to support an elevator cage at the bottom of a 2,000ft deep mineshaft. A
uniform normal strain of 250 in./in. is produced in the cable by the weight of the cage. At each point,
the weight of the cable produces an additional normal strain that is proportional to the length of the cable
below the point. If the total normal strain in the cable at the cable drum (upper end of the cable) is 700
in./in., determine
(a) the strain in the cable at a depth of 500 ft.
(b) the total elongation of the cable.
Solution
Call the vertical coordinate y and establish the origin of the y
axis at the lower end of the steel cable. The strain in the cable
has a constant term (i.e., = 250 ) and a term (we will call it
k) that varies with the vertical coordinate y.

3.10 The 16 by 22 by 25mm rubber blocks
shown in Fig. P3.10 are used in a double U
shear mount to isolate the vibration of a
machine from its supports. An applied load of
P = 285 N causes the upper frame to be
deflected downward by 5 mm. Determine the
shear modulus G of the rubber blocks.

Solution
Consider a FBD of the upper U frame. The
downward force P is resisted by two upward shear
forces V; therefore, V = 285 N / 2 = 142.5 N.
Next, consider a FBD of one of the rubber blocks.

3.14 The stressstrain diagram for a
particular stainless steel alloy is shown in
Fig. P3.14. A rod made from this material is
initially 800 mm long at a temperature of
20°C. After a tension force is applied to the
rod and the temperature is increased by
200°C, the length of the rod is 804 mm.

or inelastic. Assume the coefficient of

and the temperature of the entire assembly
has increased by 30°C, the total strain in

4.7 Rigid bar ABD in Fig. P4.7 is supported by a pin
connection at A and a tension link BC. The 8mm
diameter pin at A is supported in a double shear
connection, and the 12mmdiameter pins at B and C are
both used in single shear connections. Link BC is 30mm
wide and 6mm thick. The ultimate shear strength of the
pins is 330 MPa and the yield strength of link BC is 250
MPa.
(a) Determine the factor of safety in pins A and B with
respect to the ultimate shear strength.
(b) Determine the factor of safety in link BC with respect
to the yield strength.

twoforce member that is oriented at an angle of u with
respect to the horizontal axis:

Before the factors of safety can be determined, we must compute the shear stresses in pins A and B as

on one shear plane (which is simply equal to the crosssectional area of the pin) is half of the resultant

5.15 Rigid bar ABCD is loaded and supported as
shown in Fig. P5.15. Bars (1) and (2) are
unstressed before the load P is applied. Bar (1) is
made of bronze [E = 100 GPa] and has a cross
sectional area of 520 mm

. Bar (2) is made of
aluminum [E = 70 GPa] and has a crosssectional
area of 960 mm
2
. After the load P is applied, the
force in bar (2) is found to be 25 kN (in tension).

members. Bar (1) is bronze [E = 100 GPa] with a
crosssectional area of A
1
= 620 mm
2
. Bar (2) is
an aluminum alloy [E = 70 GPa] with a cross
sectional area of A
2
= 340 mm
2
. All bars are
unstressed before the load P is applied; however,
there is a 3mm clearance in the pin connection at
A. If a concentrated load of P = 90 kN acts on the
structure at D, determine:
(a) the normal stresses in both bars (1) and (2).
(b) the normal strains in bars (1) and (2).
(c) the downward deflection of point D on the
rigid bar.

Solution

forces in members (1) and (2). A moment equation
about pin C gives the best information for this situation:

Since there is no clearance at pin B, the deformation of
member (2) will equal the deflection of the rigid bar at
B. However, there is a 3mm clearance in the
connection at A. Consequently, not all of the rigid bar
deflection at A will go toward elongating bar (1). The
relationship between rigid bar deflection and axial
member deformation can be expressed:

5.43 Rigid bar ABCD in Fig. P5.43 is supported by a
pin connection at A and by two axial bars (1) and (2).
Bar (1) is a 30in.long bronze [E = 15,000 ksi] bar
with a crosssectional area of 1.25 in.
2
. Bar (2) is a
40in.long aluminum alloy [E = 10,000 ksi] bar with
a crosssectional area of 2.00 in.

. Both bars are
unstressed before the load P is applied. If a
concentrated load of P = 27 kips is applied to the rigid
bar at D, determine:
(a) the normal stresses in bars (1) and (2).
(b) the deflection of the rigid bar at point D.

(b)
There are no gaps, clearances, or other misfits at the
pins in this structure. The vertical deflection of the
rigid bar at C will produce deformation in member (2);
however, and the vertical deflection of the rigid bar at B
will create contraction in member (1) (see the
discussion under the heading Structures with a
rotating rigid bar in the text and examine Fig. 5.11).
Therefore, Eq. (b) can be rewritten in terms of the
member deformations as:

5.50 At a temperature of 5°C, a 3mm gap exists
between two polymer bars and a rigid support, as
shown in Fig. P5.50. Bar (1) is 50mm wide and
20mm thick [E = 800 MPa, o = 140 × 10

(a) the lowest temperature at which the 3mm gap
is closed.
(b) the normal stress in the two bars at a
temperature of 60°C.
(c) the normal strain in the two bars at 60°C.

expressions for the temperatureinduced elongations and set this equal to the 3mm gap:

Since the initial temperature is 5°C, the temperature at which the gap is closed is 29.038°C = 29.0°C. Ans.

(b) From the results obtained for part (a), we know that the gap will be closed at 60°C, making this a
statically indeterminate axial configuration. Knowing this, consider a FBD at joint B.
Assume that both internal axial forces will be tension, even
though we know intuitively that both F

to be compression.

5.54 A load of P = 85 kN is supported by a structure
consisting of rigid bar ABC, two identical solid bronze
[E = 100 GPa, o = 16.9 × 10
−6
/°C] rods, and a solid
steel [E = 200 GPa, o = 11.9×10
−6
/°C] rod, as shown
in Fig. P5.54. The bronze rods (1) each have a
diameter of 20 mm and they are symmetrically
positioned relative to the center rod (2) and the applied
load P. Steel rod (2) has a diameter of 14 mm. The
bars are unstressed when the structure is assembled.
After the temperature of the structure has been
increased by 45°C, determine:
(a) the normal stresses in the bronze and steel rods.
(b) the normal strains in the bronze and steel rods.
(c) the downward deflection of rigid bar ABC.
Fig. P5.54
Solution
Equilibrium: By virtue of symmetry, the forces in the two
bronze rods (1) are identical. Consider a FBD of the rigid
bar. Sum forces in the vertical direction to obtain:
1 2
2 0
y
F F F P E = + ÷ = (a)
Geometry of Deformations: For this configuration, the deflections of joints A, B, and C are equal:
A B C
v v v = = (b)
All pin connections are ideal; therefore, the deflection of joints A and C will cause an identical
deformation of rods (1):
1 A
v o = (c)
and the rigid bar deflection v
B
will cause an identical deformation of rod (2):
2 B
v o = (d)
Substitute Eqs. (c) and (d) into Eq. (b) to obtain the geometry of deformation equation:

Assume the core controls: If the shear stress in core (2) reaches its allowable value of 60 ksi (in other
words, if the core controls), then the shear stress in tube (1) will be:
1
0.728(60 ksi) 43.68 ksi 27 ksi t = = > N.G.
which is larger than the 27ksi allowable shear stress for the tube. Therefore, the shear stress in the tube
controls.
Tube shear stress actually controls: Rearrange Eq. (f) to solve for the shear stress in core (2) given
that the shear stress in tube (1) is at its 27ksi allowable value:

Assume the core controls: If the shear stress in core (2) reaches its allowable value of 130 MPa (in
other words, if the core controls), then the shear stress in tube (1) will be:
1
0.875(130 MPa) 113.75 MPa 90 MPa t = = > N.G.
which is larger than the 90 MPa allowable shear stress for the tube. Therefore, the shear stress in the
tube controls.

6.80 The torsional assembly of Fig. P6.80
consists of a coldrolled stainless steel tube
connected to a solid coldrolled brass
segment at flange C. The assembly is
securely fastened to rigid supports at A and
D. Stainless steel tubes (1) and (2) have an
outside diameter of 3.50 in., a wall thickness
of 0.120 in., a shear modulus of G = 12,500
ksi, and an allowable shear stress of 30 ksi.
The solid brass segment (3) has a diameter
of 2.00 in., a shear modulus of G = 5,600
ksi, and an allowable shear stress of 18 ksi.

6.81 The torsional assembly of Fig. P6.81a consists of a solid 75mmdiameter bronze [G = 45 GPa]
segment (1) securely connected at flange B to solid 75mmdiameter stainless steel [G = 86 GPa]
segments (2) and (3). The flange at B is secured by four 14mmdiameter bolts, which are each located
on a 120mmdiameter bolt circle (Fig. P6.81b). The allowable shear stress of the bolts is 90 MPa, and
friction effects in the flange can be neglected for this analysis. Determine:
(a) the allowable torque T
C
that can be applied to the assembly at C without exceeding the capacity of
the bolted flange connection.
(b) the maximum shear stress magnitude in bronze segment (1).
(c) the maximum shear stress magnitude in stainless steel segments (2) and (3).

compatibility equation, which is based on the geometry of deformations for this configuration.

between B and C by the addition of a coldrolled stainless steel tube (4) (Fig. P6.86a). The tube (Fig.
P6.86b) has an outside diameter of 3.50 in., a wall thickness of 0.12 in., and a shear modulus of G =
12,500 ksi. The tube is attached to the brass shaft by means of rigid flanges welded to the tube and to the

(b) the maximum shear stress magnitude in segment (2) of the brass shaft (i.e., between flanges B and C)

Equation (d) summarizes the results of the equilibrium considerations, but there are still two unknowns

problem, an additional equation must be developed. This second equation will be derived from the
relationship between the angles of twist in shafts (1) and (3).

The rotation of gear B is equal to the angle of twist in shaft (1):

However, since the gear teeth mesh, the rotation angles for gears B and E are not independent. The
arclengths associated with the respective rotations must be equal, but the gears turn in opposite
directions. The relationship between gear rotations can be stated as:

Equation (d) summarizes the results of the equilibrium considerations, but there are still two unknowns
in this equation: T
1
and T
3
. Consequently, this problem is statically indeterminate. To solve the
problem, an additional equation must be developed. This second equation will be derived from the
relationship between the angles of twist in shafts (1) and (3).
Geometry of Deformation Relationship:
The rotation of gear B is equal to the angle of twist in shaft (1):
1 B
  =
and the rotation of gear E is equal to the angle of twist in shaft (3):
3 E
  =
However, since the gear teeth mesh, the rotation angles for gears B and E are not independent. The
arclengths associated with the respective rotations must be equal, but the gears turn in opposite
directions. The relationship between gear rotations can be stated as:
B B E E
R R   = ÷
where R
B
and R
E
are the radii of gears B and E, respectively. Since the gear rotation angles are related to
the shaft angles of twist, this relationship can be expressed as:

6.110 A solid circular rod having
diameter D is to be replaced by a
rectangular tube having crosssectional
dimensions D × 2D (which are
measured to the wall centerlines of the
cross section shown in Fig. P6.110).
Determine the required minimum
thickness t

6.111 A 24 in. wide by 0.100 in. thick by 100 in. long steel sheet is to be formed into a hollow section
by bending through 360° and welding (i.e., buttwelding) the long edges together. Assume a cross
sectional medial length of 24 in. (no stretching of the sheet due to bending). If the maximum shear stress
must be limited to 12 ksi, determine the maximum torque that can be carried by the hollow section if
(a) the shape of the section is a circle.
(b) the shape of the section is an equilateral triangle.
(c) the shape of the section is a square.
(d) the shape of the section is an 8 × 4 in. rectangle.
