Read all of the instructions below before starting the exam

1. Turn in the exam on Canvas by 5:00 PM on Wednesday, May 20.

2. Be sure to read the instructions for each problem carefully. Read the question

statement fully and be sure to answer all components of the question.

3. You may use your homework, class notes, the textbook, references posted to Canvas,

and other study references as you work through the exam. You may not consult with

classmates.

4. Show all of your work! It’s much easier for me to give you partial credit if you clearly

document all of your steps when solving a problem.

5. Remember to write your units in your answer!

6. Box your answers!

7. If you run into algebra or math problems, write how you would have continued to solve

the problem to receive partial credit.

Sign the honor statement below after finishing the exam (a digital “signature” is acceptable)

I have neither given nor received help on this work, nor am I aware of any infraction of the

Honor Code.

Problem 1

A sign is supported on a hollow steel post that is fully fixed at its base, as shown in the diagram.

The internal forces and geometric properties shown were computed in the last exam.

Geometric Properties:

The hollow steel post is replaced by the wood post with two steel plates fastened to the faces shown on the

next page. Showing all work, find:

(a) The normal stress in the steel at the point labeled Asteel caused by bending only

(b) The normal stress in the wood at the point labeled Awood caused by bending only

(c) If the normal stress due to axial load is disregarded, is the composite member adequate? Why?

(d) What equations would you use to find the normal stress in the wood and the steel? (HINT: remember

compatibility relationships)
