# A joint between two glass plates A and B is filled with a flexible epoxy that bonds securely to the glass. The height of the joint is/p = 0.5 in, its length is L = 30 in, and its thickness is/ = 0.5 in. Shear force of I' = 25 kips is applied to the joint. Calculate the displacement of the joint if the shear modulus of elasticity G of the epoxy is 100 ksi. Calculate the average shear strain in the epoxy.

## A joint between two glass plates A and B is filled with a flexible epoxy that bonds securely to the glass. The height of the joint is/p = 0.5 in, its length is L = 30 in, and its thickness is/ = 0.5 in. Shear force of I' = 25 kips is applied to the joint. Calculate the displacement of the joint if the shear modulus of elasticity G of the epoxy is 100 ksi. Calculate the average shear strain in the epoxy.

To determine

The average shear strain in the epoxy.

### Explanation of Solution

Given Information:

t=0.5 in.h=0.5 in.L=30 in.G=100 ksiV=25 kips

According to the given information, the average shear forces is calculated as:

V=Gγaver(hL)γ
