The circular bar 1 inch in diameter shown in Fig. P-512 is bent into a semicircle with a mean radius of 2 ft. If P = 400 lb and F = 200 lb, compute the maximum flexural stress developed in section a-a. Neglect the deformation of the bar.
Write the shear and moment equations for the semicircular arch as shown in Fig. P-422 if (a) the load P is vertical as shown, and (b) the load is applied horizontally to the left at the top of the arch.
Write the shear and moment equations as functions of the angle θ for the built-in arch shown in Fig. P-421.
