The horizontal rigid beam ABCD is supported by vertical bars BE and CF and is loaded
by vertical forces P1 = 400 kN and P2 = 360 kN acting at points A and D, respectively
(see figure). Bars BE and CF are made of steel (E = 200 GPa) and have cross-sectional

mm and 32mm respectively. The distances between various points on the bars are shown
in the figure. A 10-mm-diameter pin is used at C and 8-mm-diameter pins are used at B
and E. The ultimate normal stress is 400 MPa in link BE and CF.

Project # 2 : Stress Analysis of Shear members
May, 2020
Solve two problems
Problem #1: An angle bracket having thickness
t=12.7mm is attached to the flange of a column by
two 16 mm diameter bolts (see figure). A
uniformly distributed load acts on the top face of
the bracket with a pressure p=2 MPa. The top face
of the bracket has length L=152 mm. and width
b=63 mm. Determine the average bearing pressure
σb between the angle bracket and the bolts and the
average shear stress aver in the bolts. (Disregard
friction between the bracket and the column.)
Problem#2: A bolted connection between a
vertical column and a diagonal brace is shown in
the figure. The connection consists of three 16 mm
bolts that join two 6 mm end plates welded to the
brace and a 16 mm gusset plate welded to the
column. The compressive load P carried by the
brace equals 8.0 k. Determine the following
(a) The average shear stress τaver in the bolts, and
(b) The average bearing stress σb between the
gusset plate and the bolts. (Disregard friction
between the plates.)
Problem #3: A steel plate of dimensions 2.5 x 1.2
x 0.1 m is hoisted by a cable sling that has a clevis
at each end (see figure). The pins through the
clevises are 18 mm in diameter and are located 2.0
m apart. Each half of the cable is at an angle of 32°
to the vertical. For these conditions, determine the
average shear stress τaver in the pins and the
average bearing stress σb between the steel plate
and the pins.
