Answer to Question #91051 in Mechanical Engineering for Hassan Sabah
A vertical load P is applied at the center A of the upper section of a homogeneous
frustum of a circular cone of height h, minimum radius a, and maximum radius b.
Denoting by E the modulus of elasticity of the material and neglecting the effect
of its weight, determine the deflection of point A.
1) neglecting the effect of its weight only due to p
2) consider the effect of its weight (p+w)
