Hi there, im in my final year of mechanical engineering and have been given a lab report which involves finding an equation which seems to be non existant.Hopefully a clever forum member can answer my question. According to my lecturer there is a formula/equation which will calculate deflection of a strut for any given load, as we know a strut deforms with less than the calculated buckling load. The strut is pin ended on both ends. L=458 load = 10:90 in increments of 10. I=45mm^4 A=60mm^2 b=30mm d=3mm any help would be greatly appreciated. Tom |
