20 A round steel tie rod is used as a tension member to support a dead load of 190 kN and a live load
of 220 kN. The yield strength of the steel is 320 MPa.
(a) Use the ASD method to determine the minimum diameter D required for the tie rod if a factor of
safety of 2.0 with respect to yielding is required.
(b) Use the LRFD method to determine the minimum diameter D required for the tie rod based on
yielding of the gross section using the LRFD method. Use a resistance factor of t = 0.9 and load factors
of 1.2 and 1.6 for the dead and live loads, respectively.
