The fence board weaves between three posts. If the posts remain in the same line, determine maximum bending stress in the board. • The board has a width of 6 in and thickness of 0.5 in. E = 1.6 x 103 ksi. • Assume displacement of each end relative to center of the board is 3 in. 12.13
Method of Superposition A steel bar is supported by two springs at its ends A and B. Each spring has a stiffness of 15 kip/ft and is originally unstretched. If the bar is loaded with a force of 3 kip at point C, determine the vertical displacement of the force. Neglect the weight of the bar. Est = 29 (103) ksi. I = 12 in4
A picture is taken of a man performing a pole vault. The minimum radius of curvature of the pole is estimated by measurement to be 4.5 meters. If the pole diameter is 40 mm, and is made of glass reinforced plastic for which E = 131 GPa, determine the maximum bending stress in the pole.
