Solution to Problem 226 Biaxial Deformation

Problem 226
A 2-in.-diameter steel tube with a wall thickness of 0.05 inch just fits in a rigid hole. Find the tangential stress if an axial compressive load of 3140 lb is applied. Assume ν = 0.30 and neglect the possibility of buckling.

Solution 226



Why is the diameter 2.05 in and not 2 in only?

We use nominal diameter to get the nominal length.
