Note that this gives quite a dierent result from that obtained if case 5 was chosen (thin
hollow tube). The reason is because for a square (or angular) cross-section, the assumption
of uniform stress in the wall of the hollow tube used in case 5 is not a good assumption. So
rather than getting
max
, you would get
ave
. Using (4-42):

From force balance
P = 13 kN
Assume the reaction force and moment act through the centroid of the cross-section (this is
not exactly correct, but since the centroid is usually quite close to the neutral surface, it is
a good approximation for computing the moment). Find out the location of the centroid r

Check Table 3.3, ultimate strength in tension is 345 MPa, in compression is 1172 MPa. Thus,
easier to fail in tension at the inner surface.

Comparing with the ultimate tensile strength, the part is predicted to fail at the inner surface.
4-35 The contact force is just the weight of the steel sphere. AISI 1020 steel is low-carbon
steel (see Table 3.3), and its weight density (Table 3.4) is w = 76.81 kN/m

. Thus, the
contact force is just

Lets assume yielding occurs when the maximum shear stress equals half the yield stress.

r = 0.042 m = 42 mm
So the allegation is true, and the sphere need not be all that big to induce yielding at the
location of maximum shear stress slightly below the surface. If we only considered yielding
at the surface, then from Fig. 4-16,
max
0.1p
max
. Using this in the equations above
instead results in a sphere of much larger radius, r = 1.38 m, to cause yielding at the surface
of the sphere.
