Compressive Stress

A circular cross sectional bar with a diameter of 3.25 inches is loaded with a uniform axial compressive load of 22,750 pounds. What is the compressive stress along a cross section of the bar in PSI?

Solution Preview

compressive load = 22,750 pounds
1 pound = 4.45 newton
compressive load = 101237.5 ...

Solution Summary

Compressive Stress is calculated.
