Two solid cylindrical rods (1) and (2) are joined together at flange B and loaded, as shown in Figure P1.3/4. The diameter of rod (1) is 1.75 in. and the diameter of rod (2) is 2.50 in. Determine the normal stresses in rods (1) and (2). SOLUTION: Cut a FBD through rod (1). The FBD … Continue reading Mechanics of Materials by Timothy A. Philpot, P1.4
