# Find the Compressive Stress of Concrete in Steel

**Question**

The steel pipe is filled with concrete and subjected to a compressive force of about 250 kN, figure 4. The pipe has an outer diameter of 80 mm and an inner diameter of 60 mm.

a. Determine the average compressive stress in the concrete and in the steel.

b. How far does the pipe shorten?

E_{steel} = 200 GPa

E_{concrete} = 24 GPa

**Summary**

The question belongs to Mechanical Engineering and the question is about finding average compressive stress of concrete and steel with concrete being poured in a steel pipe and then the pipe is compressed at 250kN. Calculation for how far the steel pipe gets shortened is given in the solution.

JaneteHello 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
