HW7_1B_2 : 5.0 POINTS

Let's say that a cross section where you have M+max is at location x+max, and the cross section where you have M−max is at location x−max. Use the MATLAB window below to plot the profiles of stress on sections x+max and x−max, i.e. σn(x+max,y)=σ+n(y), (Splus) and σn(x−max,y)=σ−n(y), (Smin).

A vector, y, of coordinates from the bottom (y=−0.06 m) to the top (y=0.06 m) of the cross section has already been defined for you. The vector y has 11 entries, evenly spaced, with the first entry y(1)=−0.06 at the bottom surface of the cross section, the central entry y(6)=0 at the neutral axis, and the last entry y(11)=0.06 at the top surface of the cross section.

First, enter the values of the known quantities (Mplus, Mmin, h, b) in SI units (Nm, m). Then enter an expression for I, σ+n(y), σ−n(y) (use variable names I, Splus, Smin). These expressions should be written in terms of Mplus, Mmin, h, b, and y. Note that once you have defined a variable, you can use it in successive lines of the script. (Refer to E7_1_2 for help.)

Now run the MATLAB script to plot the stress profiles. Note that in the "DO NOT EDIT" portion of the window, the script converts stress values to MPa (by dividing by 10^6) so that the values on the plots are in MPa.
A round copper wire (E=110 GPa) of round cross section with diameter d=2 mm is bent in a figure-8 around two round pegs of diamters DA=38 cm and DB=78 cm as shown in the figure. The axial force in the wire is negligible. The wire is in continuous contact with the pegs around their outer perimeters at A and B.

The beam in the figure is homogeneous, with modulus E=61.1 GPa, and has round cross section with diameter d=100 mm. The supports at A and B exert only vertical reactions. A load P=12 kN is applied as indicated, at a distance L1=0.5 m from the left support A. The distance between the supports ( at A and B) is L2=2.5 m.


Take the x-axis (from left to right) along the neutral axis, with the origin at the left end of the beam (where the load P is applied)

HW7_4: OPTIMIZATION OF SUPPORT PLACEMENT - THE TIRE SWING

You have to position the supports for a tire swing at the local playground. The top beam is of length 2L, and it supports three identical tire swings of weight W as indicated in the figure. The supporting legs will be placed symmetrically at a distance b (b < 2/3L) from the central swing.
