Question

Determine strain in BD and CE. If E and cross-sectional area are the same for the cables for both EC and DB,determine the value of P that results in this deflection of 8.Im.T Which loop would fail first, D or E? If the cable loop pulled right through the circular hook and the diameter of the hook and thickness of the support are both 0.25m, what type and how much stress developed?_ If the cable at B tears, what type of stress developed and what was its value. (Assume the cable "fills up" the hook.)_ Determine the internal forces and moments at a distance 2 m from A.
