# MANE-4030: Elements of Mechanical Design: Worksheet #8

U Q Q= 0

## where, after differentiation (but before integrating) Q

is set to zero because it is imaginary (if it were a real force, it would be set to the specified value of the force at this time). Determine the deflection in terms of the unknown diameter d. (g) Set the deflection to the maximum allowable value and solve for the diameter d.
w = 150 lb/in

3/4 d 4 in R1

d 6 in 6 in 4 in R2

Feb. 17, 2011 (a) Maximum deection will be at the center. There is currently no point load there (only distributed load), so we apply an imaginary point load Q at the center. (b) 1 R1 = R2 = 0.5(150 lb/in 12 in + Q) = 900 lb + Q 2 (c) Bending (d) For 0 x 4 in (in units of in-lb): M1 (x) = R1 x = and for 4 x 10 in: 1 M2 (x) = R1 x (150)(x 4)2 = 75x2 + 2 (e)
