Question: 1 a steel section of length l sits on an...

Question details

1. A steel section of length L sits on an 8 x 8 bearing plate. The bearing plate is perfectly rigid and sits on a 15 in x 15 in x 4 foot high concrete block which is fixed at the base. The system supports an axial load of P. A. Determine the normal stress in the steel. B. Determine the normal stress in the concrete. C. How much did the entire system shorten (Hint: the plate is perfectly rigid so it does not deform-just pretend it isnt there.) 15 in Given: p 250 kips L = 12 ft. di- 1 in. d2 = 4 in. Eşteel Econcrete - 4,000 ksi -30,000 ksi 8 in. Top View Concrete 4 ft.
