## [Strength of Materials] Problem 130

Hey guys,

Here at the solution of the problem on the last part while computing Compressive stress of member BE,

shouldn't area be 1780-5(19) instead of 1780 only or rivets also touch while compression so no loss in area is included in equation?

Thanks a lot for your answers
