A tubular post of outer diameter d2 is guyed by
two cables fitted with turnbuckles (see figure). The
cables are tightened by rotating the turnbuckles, thus
producing tension in the cables and compression in the
post. Both cables are tightened to a tensile force of 110
kN. Also, the angle between the cables and the ground is
60°, and the allowable compressive stress in the post is
sc 35 MPa.
If the wall thickness of the post is 15 mm, what is the
minimum permissible value of the outer diameter d2?
