## The uniform sign is supported by

the steel pipe AB, which has an inner
radius of 70 mm and an outer
radius of 75 mm. The face of the
sign is subjected to a wind pressure
which causes an equivalent bending
moment = -13.8 kN-m and
= 1.80 kN-m concentrated at
point B. Determine the maximum
normal stress among points C, D, E
and F
