Determine the normal stresses, Mechanical Engineering

Determine the normal stresses:

A short hollow pier 1.6 m × 1.6 m outsides as well as 1.0 m × 1.0 m intersides supports a vertical load of 2000 kN at a point located on a diagonal 0.5 m from the vertical axis of the pier. Determine the normal stresses at the 4 corners of the section of the pier, neglecting its self weight.

Solution

Figure illustrated the section of the pier. At point P, the load of 2000 kN is applied on the pier.

Area of cross-section A = 1.62 - 1.02 = 1.56 m2.

Section modulus, Z xx= Z yy 1.60 - 1.00 × (2/60) = 0.5875 m3

Eccentricity about XX-axis = Eccentricity around YY-axis

= 0.50 sin 45o = 0.353 m

Bending moment around XX-axis = Bending moment around YY-axis

= (2000 × 0.353)

= 706 kNm

Direct stress, f0  = P/ A =2000/1.56 = 1282.05 kN/m2  (compressive)

Bending stress around XX-axis = Bending stress around YY-axis

=± M/ Z =±     706 / 0.5785 = ± 1220.4 kN/m2

∴          Resultant stresses at corners,

f  = (P/ A) ± M xx/ Z xx ± M yy/ Z yy

Stress at corner A = 1282.05 + 1220.4 + 1220.4

                              = 3722.85 kN/m2 (compressive)

 Stress at corner B = 1282.05 - 1220.4 + 1220.4

                              = 1282.05 kN/m2 (compressive)

Stress at corner C = 1282.05 - 1220.4 - 1220.4

                           = - 1158.75 kN/m2 (tensile)

Stress at corner D = 1282.05 + 1220.4 - 1220.4

                              = 1282.05 kN/m2 (compressive)
