## Solution to Problem 131 Bearing Stress

**Problem 131**

Repeat Problem 130 if the rivet diameter is 22 mm and all other data remain unchanged.

## Solution to Problem 130 Bearing Stress

**Problem 130**

Figure P-130 shows a roof truss and the detail of the riveted connection at joint *B*. Using allowable stresses of τ = 70 MPa and σ_{b}= 140 MPa, how many 19-mm-diameter rivets are required to fasten member *BC* to the gusset plate? Member *BE*? What is the largest average tensile or compressive stress in *BC* and *BE*?
