## Problem 920 | Additional Centroidal Load to Eliminate Tensile Stress Anywhere Over the Cross Section

Problem 920
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? ## Problem 919 | Additional Axial Compression Load for the Section to Carry No Tensile Stress

Problem 919
