Homework Help: Permanent Offset (stress strain)

  1. Dec 19, 2012 #1
    Sorry for the inverted picture...

    "y" axis: top to bottom is 500 400 250
    "x" axis: at B is .00125 at E is .05
    modulus elasticity is E=200GPa

    so from AB=.00125
    from CD=.002 calculated: epsilon=400x10^6/200x10^9

    I need to find permanent offset(AC) and I dont know How to find the missing distance of BC

    ok, it is solved by interpolating but I dont know how to do that, to be more precise I have no clue how to interpolate
