Given: Consider a dam constructed of concrete (E = 20 GPa, n = 0.15). Due to the water pressure and the weight of the dam, an element in the dam is subjected to normal stresses in the x-y plane of: s_{x} = –200 MPa and s_{y} = –400 MPa Req'd: Determine the normal strain in the out-of-plane direction e_{z}. |
e_{z} = 0
