Now, the steel rod gets attached at the centre of steel plate, the force in each steel bar gets reduced by
20%.
Therefore, The load caried by each steel bar =

Remaining load will be carried by steel rod = W −

After connection the steel rod will not get detached from square plate, so the length of four steel bars and
steel rod will be same in the end

T2 : Solution
Due to symmetry, forces in metal wires 1 and 3 will be same, say P1
Let force in metal wire 2 is P2
As the bar is rigid, deflection of these metal wire should be equal.

P2 = P/2 and P1 = P/4
As the load applied P is increased, a smooth downward deflection of rigid bar will observed

Force in middle wire is higher than other two wires so it will yield first and further will not carry any force
(based on given stress-strain curves of wire).
Further increase in load P (say P′) will be equally carried by wire 1 and 3 only,

P1 + P3 = P′

2P1 = P′
[∵ P1 = P3]

P1 = P / 2
Δ =

where Py is the load at which wire 2 yields and P′ is the increment beyond Py.
Then, both wires 1 and 3 will yield when P′ becomes equals to the yielding load of the wires.
