1. A thrust bearing as shown in the figure supports a load P = 7500 lb. The allowable

and BD. The cross-sectional area of each member is 500mm .

3. Two hydraulic cylinders are used to control the position of the robotic

5. A thin walled, T-shaped gas pipe is fabricated from plates having a tensile
strength of 600 MPa as shown. Top and bottom plates are 20 mm thick, while plates
on left and right sides are 10 mm thick. (a) Determine the allowable stress in the

6. The structural members support the 3-kN load which may be
applied at any angle from essentially -90 to 90 . The pin at A
must be designed to support the maximum force transmitted to
it. (a) solve for angle that gives maximum reaction at A. (b)

7. Two wooden members of 3.5 x 5.5 in. uniform rectangular cross section
are joined by the simple glued scarf splice shown. Knowing that the
maximum allowable shearing stress in the glued splice is 75 psi, determine
the largest allowable load P which can be safely applied.
[Ans: P = 4.49 kips]

8. The pins on the frame at D and E have a diameter of 0.25 in. If the pins are subjected to
double shear, determine the average shear stress in the pin.
[Ans: VD = 6621 psi, VE = 6217 psi ]

9. The bars of the truss each have a cross-sectional

area of 1.25 in . If the maximum average normal stress
in any bar is not to exceed 20 ksi, determine the
maximum value of P that can be used.
[Ans: Pmax = 6.82 kips]

10. Determine the average normal stress developed in links AB and CD of the smooth
two-tine grapple that supports the log having a mass of 3 Mg. The cross-sectional area
of each link is 400 mm .
[Ans: 339 MPa]
11. The crimping tool is used to crimp
the end of the wire E. If a force of 20
lb is applied to the handles,
determine the average shear stress in
the pin at A. The pin is subjected to
double shear and has a diameter of
0.2 in. Only a vertical force is exerted
on the wire.
[Ans: 3.71 ksi]

12. The average shear stress in each of the 6-mm diameter bolts and along each
of the four shaded shear planes is not allowed to exceed 80 MPa and 500 kPa,
respectively. Determine the maximum axial force P that can be applied to the
[Ans: 9.05 kN]
