Solution to Problem 215 Axial Deformation

Problem 215
A uniform concrete slab of total weight W is to be attached, as shown in Fig. P-215, to two rods whose lower ends are on the same level. Determine the ratio of the areas of the rods so that the slab will remain level.

Solution to Problem 214 Axial Deformation

Problem 214
The rigid bars AB and CD shown in Fig. P-214 are supported by pins at A and C and the two rods. Determine the maximum force P that can be applied as shown if its vertical movement is limited to 5 mm. Neglect the weights of all members.

Solution to Problem 213 Axial Deformation

Problem 213
The rigid bar AB, attached to two vertical rods as shown in Fig. P-213, is horizontal before the load P is applied. Determine the vertical movement of P if its magnitude is 50 kN.
