can be written to determine the normal strain in the direction of diagonal AC. Since there is no shear
stress acting on the plate, we know that xy = 0 (since Hookes Law relating shear stress and shear strain
is xy = Gxy).

The change in length of diagonal AC is computed from the product of AC and the initial diagonal length:
Ans.
AC AC LAC (2,166.77 106 in./in.)(14.42221 in.) 0.0328 in.
Alternate Method: The change in length of diagonal AC can also be computed using the Pythagorean
theorem. After deformation, the final length of side AB of the plate is 12.14224 in. The final length of
side AD is 7.84298 in. From the Pythagorean theorem, the deformed length of diagonal AC is:

LAC
(12.14224 in.)2 (7.84298 in.)2 14.45497 in.

subjected to torque T. The shaft is made of
aluminum [E = 70 GPa; = 0.33]. A strain gage is

Figure P13.78.

## Therefore, the strain gage should be expected to read a normal strain of

n 822

Ans.

(b) A normal strain transformation equation can be written for the gage:
n x cos 2 y sin 2 xy sin cos
1,400 xy sin(55)cos(55)
recognizing that the normal stresses in the x and y directions are zero.

## From Eq. (13.22), substitute for xy:

xy
1,400
sin(55)cos(55)
G
Solve for xy:
xy
78.413 MPa
sin(55)cos(55)
The torque T that causes this shear stress is
xy J (78.413 N/mm2 )(557,271.413 mm 4 )
