The copper shaft is subjected to the axial loads shown. Determine the displacement of end A with respect to end D if the diameters of each segment are dAB = 0.75 in., dBC = 1 in., and dCD = 0.5 in. Take Ecu = 18(103) ksi.

Problem 4-2

The copper shaft is subjected to the axial loads shown. Determine the displacement of end A with respect to end D if the diameters of each segment are , and . Take .

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 3

The diameter is .

The diameter is .

The diameter is .

In order to determine the total displacement, we need to determine the displacement in segment AB.

Substitute the given values , , and in the above expression.
