Solution to Problem 227 Biaxial Deformation

Problem 227
A 150-mm-long bronze tube, closed at its ends, is 80 mm in diameter and has a wall thickness of 3 mm. It fits without clearance in an 80-mm hole in a rigid block. The tube is then subjected to an internal pressure of 4.00 MPa. Assuming ν = 1/3 and E = 83 GPa, determine the tangential stress in the tube.

Solution 227



In the solution
you used the formula for longitudinal stress and found it. Yet you didnt simply used the formula for tangential stress. Why?
