Step 1

1 of 6List down the given data.

Given:

- Applied load: $P = 8.5\ \text{kips} = 8500\ \text{lbs}$
- Allowable stress: $\sigma_{\text{max}} = 18\ \text{ksi} = 18000\ \text{psi}$
- Radius at A: $r_{\text{A}} = \dfrac{1}{2}\ \text{in}$
- Radius at B: $r_{\text{B}} = \dfrac{3}{8}\ \text{in}$
- Width at the larger end: $w_1 = 2.2\ \text{in}$
- Width at the smaller end: $w_2 = 1.6\ \text{in}$

Required:

- Minimum thickness, $t$
