## Solution to Problem 270 Thermal Stress

**Problem 270**

A bronze sleeve is slipped over a steel bolt and held in place by a nut that is turned to produce an initial stress of 2000 psi in the bronze. For the steel bolt, A = 0.75 in^{2}, E = 29 × 10^{6} psi, and α = 6.5 × 10^{-6} in/(in·°F). For the bronze sleeve, A = 1.5 in^{2}, E = 12 × 10^{6} psi and α = 10.5 × 10^{-6} in/(in·°F). After a temperature rise of 100°F, find the final stress in each material.

## Solution to Problem 262 Thermal Stress

**Problem 262**

A steel rod is stretched between two rigid walls and carries a tensile load of 5000 N at 20°C. If the allowable stress is not to exceed 130 MPa at -20°C, what is the minimum diameter of the rod? Assume α = 11.7 µm/(m·°C) and E = 200 GPa.

## Solution to Problem 261 Thermal Stress

**Problem 261**

A steel rod with a cross-sectional area of 0.25 in^{2} is stretched between two fixed points. The tensile load at 70°F is 1200 lb. What will be the stress at 0°F? At what temperature will the stress be zero? Assume α = 6.5 × 10^{-6} in/(in·°F) and E = 29 × 10^{6} psi.

## Solution to Problem 212 Axial Deformation

**Problem 212**

The rigid bar ABC shown in Fig. P-212 is hinged at A and supported by a steel rod at B. Determine the largest load P that can be applied at C if the stress in the steel rod is limited to 30 ksi and the vertical movement of end C must not exceed 0.10 in.

## Solution to Problem 142 Pressure Vessel

**Problem 142**

A pipe carrying steam at 3.5 MPa has an outside diameter of 450 mm and a wall thickness of 10 mm. A gasket is inserted between the flange at one end of the pipe and a flat plate used to cap the end. How many 40-mm-diameter bolts must be used to hold the cap on if the allowable stress in the bolts is 80 MPa, of which 55 MPa is the initial stress? What circumferential stress is developed in the pipe? Why is it necessary to tighten the bolt initially, and what will happen if the steam pressure should cause the stress in the bolts to be twice the value of the initial stress?

## Solution to Problem 131 Bearing Stress

**Problem 131**

Repeat Problem 130 if the rivet diameter is 22 mm and all other data remain unchanged.

## Solution to Problem 130 Bearing Stress

**Problem 130**

Figure P-130 shows a roof truss and the detail of the riveted connection at joint B. Using allowable stresses of τ = 70 MPa and σ_{b}= 140 MPa, how many 19-mm-diameter rivets are required to fasten member BC to the gusset plate? Member BE? What is the largest average tensile or compressive stress in BC and BE?
