A 3-mm thick hollow polystyrene cylinder E = 3GPa and
a rigid circular plate (only part of which is shown) are used to
support a 250-mm long steel rod AB (E = 200 GPa) of 6-mm
diameter. If a 3.2KB load P is applied at B, determine (a) the
elongation of rod AB, (b) the deflection of point B, (c) the
average normal stress in rod AB.

(E = 200GPa) and has a uniform rectangular cross section of
6 * 24 mm. Determine the largest load which can be suspended
from point E if the deflection of E is not to exceed 0.25 mm.
Solution:
∑MB = P(375 + 250) – FDC (250) = 0
∴  = 2.5 ()
∑Fy = FDC – FBA – P = 0
∴  = 1.5 ()
∴ ΔCD

∴ 2.7776(10)−8 = 0.25(10)−3
∴P)max = 9.57 KN

The length of the 2-mm diameter steel wire CD has been
adjusted so that with no load applied, a gap of 1.5mm exists

should be placed on the beam in order to cause contact between
B and E.
