Strength of Materials

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    In the attachment

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have been solving this question for quite some time but I cant get the answer yet.
    I offset all the forces to point C and I get the following values:
    Moment at y-axis, M(y) = 10Nm
    Moment at z-axis, M(z) = 48Nm

    Stress at x-axis = -M(z) x (21mm) / I = -20MPa
    Stress at z-axis = 0

    Shear stress at xz plane = Tc/J
    = (40Nm) (21mm) / J
    = 8.33MPa
    By applying the following equations to get the principle strain,
    tan(2theta)=2(Shear stress at xz plane) /(Stress at x-axis - Stress at z-axis)

    I cant get the correct answer.

    Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

    Did you check your units?
