The A-36-steel band is 2 in. wide and is secured around the smooth rigid cylinder. If the bolts are tightened so that the tension in them is 400 lb, determine the normal stress in the band, the pressure exerted on the cylinder, and the distance half the band stretches.

Problem 8-10The A-36-steel band is 2 in. wide and is secured around the smooth rigid cylinder. If the boltsare tightened so that the tension in them is 400 lb, determine the normal stress in the band, thepressure exerted on the cylinder, and the distance half the band stretches. Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 3 ^Calculate the radial stress using the following relation: F 1= A F = w × tHere, the tensile force is F, the width of the band is w, and the thickness of the band is t. 1Substitute 2 in. for w, 8 for t , and 400 lb for F. 400 = 1 1 2×8 = 1600 psi
