PROBLEM 2.48
The assembly shown consists of an aluminum shell ( Ea = 10.6 × 106 psi,
αa = 12.9 × 10–6/°F) fully bonded to a steel core ( Es = 29 × 106 psi,

change in temperature if the stress in the aluminum shell is not to exceed
6 ksi, (b) the corresponding change in length of the assembly.

reinforce a brass bar ( Eb = 105 GPa, α b = 20.9 × 10−6 / °C) that is
subjected to a load P = 25 kN. When the steel bars were fabricated, the
distance between the centers of the holes that were to fit on the pins
was made 0.5 mm smaller than the 2 m needed. The steel bars
were then placed in an oven to increase their length so that they
would just fit on the pins. Following fabrication, the temperature
in the steel bars dropped back to room temperature. Determine
(a) the increase in temperature that was required to fit the steel
bars on the pins, (b) the stress in the brass bar after the load is
applied to it.

PROBLEM 2.57
Determine the maximum load P that may be applied to the brass bar of
Prob. 2.56 if the allowable stress in the steel bars is 30 MPa and the
allowable stress in the brass bar is 25 MPa.
PROBLEM 2.56 Two steel bars ( Es = 200 GPa and α s = 11.7 × 10–6/°C)
are used to reinforce a brass bar ( Eb = 105 GPa, α b = 20.9 × 10–6/°C)
that is subjected to a load P = 25 kN. When the steel bars were fabricated,
the distance between the centers of the holes that were to fit on the pins was
made 0.5 mm smaller than the 2 m needed. The steel bars were then placed
in an oven to increase their length so that they would just fit on the pins.
Following fabrication, the temperature in the steel bars dropped back to
room temperature. Determine (a) the increase in temperature that was
required to fit the steel bars on the pins, (b) the stress in the brass bar after
the load is applied to it.
SOLUTION
See solution to Problem 2.56 to obtain the fabrication stresses.

Allowable stresses:
σ s ,all = 30 MPa, σ b ,all = 25 MPa

Narrow bars of aluminum are bonded to the two sides of a thick steel plate as
shown. Initially, at T1 = 70°F, all stresses are zero. Knowing that the
temperature will be slowly raised to T2 and then reduced to T1, determine
(a) the highest temperature T2 that does not result in residual stresses, (b) the
temperature T2 that will result in a residual stress in the aluminum equal to
58 ksi. Assume α a = 12.8 × 10−6 / °F for the aluminum and α s = 6.5 × 10−6 / °F
for the steel. Further assume that the aluminum is elastoplastic, with

PROBLEM 2.135
The uniform rod BC has a cross-sectional area A and is made of a
mild steel that can be assumed to be elastoplastic with a modulus of
elasticity E and a yield strength σ y . Using the block-and-spring
system shown, it is desired to simulate the deflection of end C of the
rod as the axial force P is gradually applied and removed, that is, the
deflection of points C and C′ should be the same for all values of P.
Denoting by μ the coefficient of friction between the block and the
horizontal surface, derive an expression for (a) the required mass m
of the block, (b) the required constant k of the spring.
