# Combined Stresses

## Problem 917 | Combined Axial and Bending

**Problem 917**

For the structure in Problem 916, calculate the maximum compressive stress in bar *ABC* if its cross section is 200 mm square.

## Problem 915 | Combined Axial and Bending

**Problem 915**

For the structure in Problem 914, compute the maximum tensile stress developed in bar *CB*.

## Problem 01 | Stress in Helical Spring

**Situation**

The helical spring shown is axially loaded with a compression force P equal to 5 kN. The mean diameter of the spring is 100 mm and the wire used is 10 mm as indicated in the figure.

- What is the shear stress at A?
- What is the shear stress at B?
- On diameter AB, locate the point of zero stress measured from C.
