A steel bar (E=2.0E10 Pa,=0.3,α=1.2E-5) with the dimensions shown below is placed between two walls. On one side, the bar is rigidly fixed to the wall and on the other, there is a 2 mm gap between the wall and the bar. What is the maximum stress in the bar after the temperature increases 100 degrees Celsius?
