Q1) The composite aluminum and steel member (Fig 1) is attached to supports at its ends.
A 240 kip force is applied as shown in the figure below. Given that ES = 30 x 106 psi and
EA = 10 x 106 psi, determine:
a)
b)
c)

## the reactions at the supports

the stress in each part, and
the strain in each part

## Formulas you may need:

strain , =

PL

AE

## A is cross sectional area ( 2ft 2 ) , E is material property

Q2) A solid shaft (Do = 6 in) of G=12x106 psi was designed to
support 6000 psi shear stress under 20000 lb-ft torque. Later it was found that a shear
of 7100 psi is more practical. Your supervisor suggested to hollow the shaft so that the
strength increases. (a) What inner diameter would you prefer for the shaft? (b) Do you
find increasing the shaft diameter instead of hollowing it a better idea? Why? Or Why not?

Q3) Two 3/8 x 6 in. plates are joined by in. diameter rivets as shown (Fig 2). What is the
safe (max) value of load P on the plates if the allowable stress in tension is 22 ksi, the
allowable stress in shear is 29 ksi, and the allowable stress in bearing is 58 ksi?
