If Drawn Figure For Problem Would Resemble

If drawn, a figure for this problem would resemble that for Prob. 4–52. A strut that is a standard hollow right circular cylinder has an outside diameter of 4 in and a wall thickness of 3/8 in and is compressed between two circular end plates held by four bolts equally spaced on a bolt circle of 5.68-in diameter. All four bolts are hand-tightened, and then bolt A is tightened to a tension of 2000 lbf and bolt C, diagonally opposite, is tightened to a tension of 10 000 lbf. The strut axis of symmetry is coincident with the center of the bolt circles. Find the maximum compressive load, the eccentricity of loading, and the largest compressive stress in the strut.
