Calculate the Maximum Shear Stress

A steel bar with diameter d = 14 mm is subjected to a tensile load P = 10 kN (see figure). (a) What is the maximum normal stress σmax in the bar? (b) What is the maximum shear stress τmax?

Find the axial forces of the members 2-3, 9-3 of the truss for the given loads.

Calculate the location of point load

Calculate the distance x for locating point load so that the moment on the beam at point B is zero.

The column A moves to the right with variable speed V(t)=4*Vo*t+c. Calculate the angular velocity and the angular acceleration of the beam B. The beam is pinned at one end. (c is constant).
