QUESTION 4:
A point on a thin plate is subjected to the two stress components. Determine the resultant state of
stress represented on the element oriented as shown on the right.
QUESTION 5:
Determine the equivalent state of stress on an element at the same point which represents (a) the
principal stress, and (b) the maximum in-plane shear stress and the associated average normal
stress. Also, for each case, determine the corresponding orientation of the element with respect to
the element shown and sketch the results on the element.
