1. (a) A glued lap splice is to be made in a 10 × 20 mm rectangular member at α =20°, as shown in Fig.1. Assuming that, the shear strength of the glued joint controls the design, what axial force P is to be applied to the member to get separated to 2 parts? Assume the shear strength of the glued joint to be 10MPa.

(b) An exploded view of a bolted connection is as shown in Fig 2(b). The width of the plate is 60mm; their thicknesses are t1 =10mm. The snugly fitting bolt is 20mm in diameter. Calculate the maximum normal stress in the plates at the critical section due to an applied tensile force P=70 kN. For the same condition calculate the bearing and shear stresses in the bolt. t1 P/2

2. A 2‐mm‐ thick hollow circular tube of
30 mm outside diameter is subjected to a
constant shear of 10 Pa in the axial
direction, as shown in Fig 3. If the tube is
400 mm long what is the axial stress? Plot
the variation of axial stress along the tube.
