Practice Problem 9-2 Back | Index | Next

Given: During a field test, an aluminum machine component fails when under a stress state of
x = 32 ksi, sy = 2.0 ksi, and txy = 9 ksi. Assume plane stress conditions.

Req'd: Based on the maximum distortion energy theory (von Mises), determine the yield strength of the material Sy.

Sy =  ksi  (1%)
