Homework Help: Stress in bracket distributed eccentric load

  1. Nov 19, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have designed a bracket and am interested in stress at a certain point. I have figured out the load needed to support. The area of interest carries an eccentric load so bending moment and axial load need to be figured out. Not sure which FBD is correct to use.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    See picture

    Sketch the bracket more clearly and in 3D so that we can understand the problem better .

    This shows how it straps the tube. The tube is what gets hit.
