Question: rigid bar abc shown in the figure is supported by...
Rigid bar ABC shown in the figure is supported by a pin at bracket A and by tie rod (1). Tie rod (1) has a diameter of 6 mm, and it is supported by double-shear pin connections at B and D. The pin at bracket A is a single-shear connection. All pins are 8 mm in diameter. Assume a = 575 mm, b = 325 mm, h = 450 mm, P = 775 N, and θ = 65°.
Determine the following:
(a) the normal stress in rod (1)
(b) the shear stress in pin B
(c) the shear stress in pin A
