# Question 3. The block is subjected to a triaxial loading as shown. If y = 0.30 and E = 29 x 106 psi, determine the following: a) the single uniformly distributed load (in kips) in the x-direction that would produce the same deformation in the y-direction as the original loading (20 pts, consideration 5 pts); and b) the single uniformly distributed load (in kips) that must be added in the load which exists in the x-direction to produce no deformation in the z-direction. (20 pts, consideration 5 pts). HINT: No deformation in the z-direction means there is no strain in that specific direction but is still subjected to a particular stress. With that, correlating different strains by Poisson's ratio may not be applicable in this part. Use 2 decimal places in every solved value. у 60 kips 48 kips 54 kips z 2" 54 kips 48 kips x v. 3" 60 kips 4"
