A rectangular steel plate has a strain of 2.8 Ã? 10â?"5 when it is subjected to
a tensile stress Ï?x. What stress Ï?y should be applied in the y direction in
order to make no net strain in the x direction? Take E = 200 GPa and
v = 0.28.
For the particular case of 2D loading, the Hooke's equations simplify as follows:
Complex loading systems are examined.
