Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

for some reason I cant seem to be able to find this.

Suppose you have a elastic cylinder, a full cylindrical bar (not hollow), and you want to compress the two end faces (axial compression) together and find the stress in the axial direction...or strain.

I cant seem to be able to find this problem posed anywhere in a google search and it seems easy enough for there to be a textbook analytical expression.

anyone know of any references?

Thank you
