A compressive load P = 100 kN is applied, as shown in Fig. 9-8a, at a point 70 mm to the left and 30 mm above the centroid of a rectangular section for which h = 300 mm and b = 250 mm. What additional load, acting normal to the cross section at its centroid, will eliminate tensile stress anywhere over the cross section?
A compressive load P = 12 kips is applied, as in Fig. 9-8a, at a point 1 in. to the right and 2 in. above the centroid of a rectangular section for which h = 10 in. and b = 6 in. Compute the stress at each corner and the location of the neutral axis. Illustrate the answers with a sketch.
For the structure shown in Figure P-916 is hinged to fixed supports at A and E. Compute the maximum compressive stress developed in bar BDE if its cross section is 200 mm square. Neglect the weights of the members.
The structure shown in Figure P-914 is hinged to fixed is hinged to fixed supports at A and C. Assume that the pin connections at A, B, and C are frictionless. The bars are each 4 in. by 4 in. in section. Compute the maximum compressive stress developed in bar AD.
