a load p is supported by a steel pin that has been inserted in a short wooden member hanging from the ceiling. the ultimate strength of the wood used is 60 MPa in tension and 7.5 MPa in shear, while the ultimate strength of the steel is 145 MPa in shear. knowing that b= 40 mm, c= 55mm, and d=12mm, determine the load P if an overall factor of safety of 3.2 is desired. [ans : 10.25 ]
To answer your question, I would need to see the figure that defines b, c and d, and explains how the pin is supported by the wood.
