Problem 524 | Friction

Problem 524
A horizontal arm having a bushing of 20 mm long is slipped over a 20-mm diameter vertical rod, as shown in Fig. P-524. The coefficient of friction between the bushing and the rod is 0.20. Compute the minimum length L at which a weight W can be placed to prevent the arm from slipping down the rod. Neglect the weight of the arm.

Problem 357 | Equilibrium of Non-Concurrent Force System

Problem 357
The uniform rod in Fig. P-357 weighs 420 lb and has its center of gravity at G. Determine the tension in the cable and the reactions at the smooth surfaces at A and B.

26-27 Horizontal rod entering into a room from a perpendicular corridor

Problem 26
A corridor 4 ft wide opens into a room 100 ft long and 32 ft wide, at the middle of one side. Find the length of the longest thin rod that can be carried horizontally into the room.

Solution to Problem 256 Statically Indeterminate

Problem 256
Three rods, each of area 250 mm2, jointly support a 7.5 kN load, as shown in Fig. P-256. Assuming that there was no slack or stress in the rods before the load was applied, find the stress in each rod. Use Est = 200 GPa and Ebr = 83 GPa.

Solution to Problem 255 Statically Indeterminate

Problem 255
Shown in Fig. P-255 is a section through a balcony. The total uniform load of 600 kN is supported by three rods of the same area and material. Compute the load in each rod. Assume the floor to be rigid, but note that it does not necessarily remain horizontal.

Solution to Problem 252 Statically Indeterminate

Problem 252
The light rigid bar ABCD shown in Fig. P-252 is pinned at B and connected to two vertical rods. Assuming that the bar was initially horizontal and the rods stress-free, determine the stress in each rod after the load after the load P = 20 kips is applied.

Solution to Problem 251 Statically Indeterminate

Problem 251
The two vertical rods attached to the light rigid bar in Fig. P-251 are identical except for length. Before the load W was attached, the bar was horizontal and the rods were stress-free. Determine the load in each rod if W = 6600 lb.
