Question: figa question a2 a 2 m long strut is pinned...

Question details

FIg.A Question A2. A 2 m long strut is pinned at both ends. The strut has a square cross-section 0.05 m x 0.05 m. If the strut is required to support a maximum axial load of 260 kN, determine the following two properties of the strut material: using Eulers formula, determine the Youngs modulus. Using the Rankine-Gordon formula, determine the yield stress. (i) () You may use the following equations without proof: n㎡EI L2 Po,- 2 and assume a a k 7500 [10 Marks]
