Chapter 9, Problem 9.44SP

A 1 00-ft surveyor’s steel tape with a cross-sectional area of 0.005 in.2 is subjected to a 15- lb pull when in use. Compute

(a) the total elongation of the tape

(b) the tensile stress developed in the tape

Two horizontal 6.5-kip forces (P) are applied to pin B of the assembly shown. A 0.8-in. diameter pin is used at each connection. 0.5 in. 1.8 in.. 60° 45% P P 0.5 in. 1.8 in. С Determine the average bearing stress at C in member BC. The average bearing stress at C in member BC is ksi.
The lap joint shown is fastened by five ¾ inch-diameter rivets. The bearing stress in the plates is limited to 10 ksi and the shearing stress in the rivets is 15 ksi. Assume the applied load is equally distributed among the five rivets. The thickness of each plate is ½ in. Calculate the load P based on each stress given. Determine the maximum safe load P that can be applied. Express the loads in kips.
The rectangular bar shown is connected to a support bracket with a 24 mm diameter pin.  The width of the rectangular bar is 70 mm and its thickness is 15 mm.  The bearing stress in the bar cannot exceed 120 MPa.  Determine the maximum value of Pmax that can be supported based solely on consideration of the bearing stress in the bar.  Note:  This question is not asking about any stresses in the support bracket...just bearing stress in the rectangular bar.
