Four identical hollow cylindrical columns of steel support a big structure of mass 50,000 kg the inner and outer radii of each column is 30cm and 60cm

assuming the load distribution to be uniform calculate the compressional strain of each column (Ys=2x10^11)



This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
Let us assume that the weight of the structure is equally distributed among all the columns..

Stress = 50, 000 * 9.81 Newtons / π (0.60² - 0.30²) m²
Strain =  Stress / Ys =  578262.96 / 2  * 10¹¹
       =    2.891 * 10⁻⁶ meters  = 2.891  μ meter
