QUESTION 2

Figure Q2 shows a structure that consists of rigid bar CD that is originally horizontal. The bar is

supported by pins and 6 mm diameter steel rods CF and GH. If the vertical load of 20 kN is applied at

A of rod AB which is also 6 mm in diameter, determine:

 (i) the normal stress in rods AB, CF, and GH, [8 marks] (ii) the vertical displacement of point G. [2 marks]

Use E steel = 200 GPa. Figure Q2

QUESTION 3

A 5-m steel shaft rotating at 2 Hz has 60 kW applied at gear B that is 2 m from the left end where 20

kW is removed. At the right end, 20 kW is removed and another 20 kW leaves the shaft at 1.5 m from

the right end.

(i)

(ii)

Calculate the uniform shaft diameter so that the shearing stress is not to exceed 60 MPa.

[5 marks]

If a uniform shaft diameter of 100 mm is specified, determine the total angle of twist of

the shaft in between A and D.
