ETME360 Spring 2014
E-problem 7

A three-element Rectangular strain gage rosette is mounted to a titanium component, (Etitanium = 14.5 X 106 PSI, v = 0.3).
The following strains are measured under constant-temperature biaxial loading: 
Gage A = 1000 X10-6, Gage B = -100 X10-6, Gage C = 2000 X10-6.

What three strains (axes a, b, and c - oriented as shown on the paper handout given 2/29/2012)  would be indicated by a three-element Delta configuration rosette at the same location, assuming axis A of the delta was identically aligned?
