Rectangular beam has cross sectional area of 2" x 4". The beam is subjected to a longitudinal compressive force of 6000 lbs. The unit strain is 1 x 10-6 ft/ft. What is the original length if the beam is compressed 1 x 10-6 ft?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 5:48 pm ad1c9bdddf
Please find the answer to your question below.
We know that
Strain = change in length /original length
or original length = change in length / ...
Length of a Beam is found given Cross-Sectional Area, Logitudinal Compressive Force and Unit Strain.
