to the top of a vertical buttress AB (see figure). The vertical buttress has height h = 5.0 m
and rectangular cross section of thickness t = 1.5 m and width b = 1.0 m (perpendicular
to the plane of the figure). The stone used in the construction weighs = 26 kN/m3
What is the required weight W of the pedestal and statue above the vertical buttress
(that is, above section A) to avoid any normal tensile stresses in the vertical buttress?

the tube if its outside diameter d is 100 mm and the desired factor of safety with respect
to Euler buckling is n=3.0. (Assume E = 72 GPa.)
