Now in 4-color format with more illustrations than ever before, the Seventh Edition of Mechanics of Materials continues its tradition as one of the leading texts on the market. With its hallmark clarity and accuracy, this text develops student understanding along with analytical and problem-solving skills. The main topics include analysis and design of structural members subjected to tension, compression, torsion, bending, and more. The book includes more material than can be taught in a single course giving instructors the opportunity to select the topics they wish to cover while leaving any remaining material as a valuable student reference.

A steel column of hollow circular cross section is supported on a circular steel base plate and a concrete pedestal (see figure). The column has outside diameter d=250 mm and supports a load P=750 kN. (a) If the allowable stress in the column is 55 MPa, what is the minimum required thickness t? Based upon your result, select a thickness for the column. (Select a thickness that is an even integer, such as 10, 12, 14, . . . , in units of millimeters.) (b) If the allowable bearing stress on the concrete pedestal is 11.5 MPa, what is the minimum required diameter D of the base plate if it is designed for the allowable load Pallow that the column with the selected thickness can support?
