The flat frame in Fig. 8.33 ring section is loaded with force F perpendicular to the plane of the frame. Knowing that D = 212 mm; d = 193 mm; a = 0.4 m;
E = 21.10^4 MPa; G = 8.1.10^4 MPa; F = 21 kN is required:
a) To determine the displacement of the point of application of the force;
b) To determine the maximum equivalent tension.

These are the problem data.
