http://s44.photobucket.com/albums/f46/maximus11373/?action=view¤t=w-1.jpg&newest=1 An inclined member is braced with a glued block, as shown. The ultimate shear stress in the glued joint is 1050 psi. Determine the dimension X at which the glued joint will fail. I know that -shearstress= (Pressure x length) dived by (Area x modulus of elasticity) - At point A there is X forces and Y forces, at point B there is Normal Force. -Pressure max = (Shearstress X Area) ------------ so far i know that Force at A in the X direction is 1050x (2x2) = 4200 lbs other than that im stuck and i dont know where to start.....any help would be appreciated.
