Q4. (15 Marks) The rigid bar ABC is suspended from two steel rods (Elastic Modulus, E = 200 GPa, and the maximum allowable stress Gallowable = 250 MPa for tension and Calkowable = 350 MPa for compression) as shown and is initially horizontal. Assume that the bar ABC has a zero coefficient of thermal expansion and that the two vertical steel rods have a thermal expansion coefficient of 18x106 /°C.
