  1. Thank you

    Right!! I have "sooo much" time now.
  2. Thank you

    Thank you and I hope you get your result soon!! Having a family is great and it puts everything in a different perspective. I'd say it's smart to wait if you can, considering I haven't slept through a single night in over 4 years ?. They are my backbone though and I wouldn't have been motivated to study without them.
  3. Thank you

    Thank you to all you guys who helped me figure out the tricky problems during studying. I passed the PE test. I really appreciate the help. I have 3 little kids under 4, including an infant, and I couldn't make it to a review course so I had to just do my best self studying. I am very grateful for your support.
  4. Fasteners Handbook ?

    Seriously thank you so much! This is exactly what I have been searching for.
  5. Fasteners Handbook ?

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. Fasteners Handbook ?

    Thanks that is helpful, I do have both references and was looking for that. I was looking also for weight of round bar (etc), do you know if that is included anywhere? I found a steel sizes & weights chart online that I printed but I'm wondering if you know if that's covered in these references?
  7. Fasteners Handbook ?

    For those of you taking Machine Design & Materials, what handbook are you bringing for fastener strengths? In one of the practice test problems, NCEES referenced the strength of a specific threaded rod and I was wondering what reference material you are bringing for these types of look-ups. Thank you!
  8. NCEES Practice Exam MD&M #121 question

    This problem is #529 in the 2011 practice test and they call out e=6in there and W=4500lb. So I think M=27,000 not 27.000. So I think I figured it out.
  9. I have visited this problem multiple times and I understand everything, except I cannot figure out how they got e=6in (in solution). What am I missing? If the moment is 27 in-lb, why can't I just use that for M? (Other than it keeps giving me the wrong answer lol) Thanks!
  10. NCEES Practice Exam MD&M #112 question

    Thank you! I am about to post a question on #121.
  11. NCEES Practice Exam MD&M #112 question

    Thank you so much for the lead. Are you saying that the elastic deformation is the force of the spring acting on the bar? So as the bar expands, there is a force the spring is pushing back on the bar, thus reducing the compression of the spring? This is how I understand this and I just want to make sure. Thank you!!
  12. NCEES Practice Exam MD&M #112 question

    http://www.chegg.com/homework-help/problems-section-statically-indeterminate-problems-involve-t-chapter-3.6-problem-7p-solution-9780470912003-exc similar problem
  13. This problem appears in the 2011 version of NCEES Practice Exam as #520 and appears in the 2016 version as #112. It is about a steel bar expanding under a temperature increase. The bar is mounted against a spring, the system is horizontal. The system is mounted between two walls. It is asking for the increase in force produced by the thermal expansion of the bar. I've tried this problem a few times and I keep getting 648lb instead of their answer of 624. So I'm just looking for some guidance on how they are solving this one, mainly how they are coming up with the main equation they are using, or the logic? Thanks so much!
  14. I am also confused on 533 and got 1.57 (C) as my answer.
  15. If you want help with a practice problem...

    I just saw this and was thinking that I did post some problems on 1-2 threads, but I don't have the option to delete them. So not sure how I would remove them. Any help? I don't want to break any of the rules on posting. Thanks so much.
