# Shear Strain Calculation of Concrete Holding Epoxy

Question

Shear strain

A joint between two concrete slabs A and B is filled with a flexible epoxy that bonds securely to the concrete. The height of the joint is h = 100 mm, its length is L = 1 m, and its thickness is t = 125 mm. Under the action of shear forces V, the slabs displace vertically through the distance d = 0.050 mm relative to each other. (a) What is the average shear strain ?aver in the epoxy? (b) What is the magnitude of the forces V if the shear modulus of elasticity G for the epoxy is 0.5 GPa?

Summary

The question belongs to Mechanical Engineering and the question is about shear strain of things. The question here deals with the shear strain of epoxy which holds together two slabs of concrete with very little displacement.

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
