Calculate Normal Stress For A Rod With Two Cylindrical Portions


A rod consisting of two cylindrical portions AB and BC is restrained at both ends. Portion AB is made of structural steel and portion BC is made of cold-rolled red brass. Knowing that the rod is initially unstressed,


a. The normal stresses induced in portions AB and BC by a temperature rise of 65°F.

b. The corresponding deflection of point B.

c. The total deflection of the rod AC.


The question belongs to Physics and it discusses about calculation of normal stresses induced, corresponding deflection and total defection for a rod consisting of two cylindrical portions.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
