Determine the magnitude of reaction at point A (in kips) of a 20' beam with 5kips at 4' of the beam and 2kips at 9' of the beam at 350lbs./ft.

The grains of wood in the board make an angle of 20 degrees with the horizontal as shown. Determine the normal and shear stresses that act perpendicular and parallel to the grains if the board is subjected to an axial load of 250 N.(Dimensions l=300mm, w=25 mm, h=60 mm)

2. A beam having an overall length of 24 has a 4 overhang at one end. The left support is a pin connection, and the right connection is a roller. A concentrated downward force of 2000 lb. is located 6 from the left support, and a uniformly distributed load of 200 lbs./lin. ft. begins 6...

normal and shear stresses that act perpendicular and parallel to the grains if the board is subjected to an axial load

the semicicular threepinnned arch has a uniform square crosssection of depth 5cm and made of material with elastic modulus E=30 x 10^8kN/m^2. The radius of the arch is 10m and it is subjected to a vertical load of 10kN at the point C. Ignoring both axial and shear deformations and using the...

use laplace transform to solve differential equations. y''+2y'+y=8e^2t with y(0)=1 and y'(0)=1

for what consumer item did Robert de Graff create a vast new market? a. zippers b. movies c. paperback books d. trucks ?

WTF IS THIS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?

If the discharge is 500 cfs, what power output may be expected from the turbine

A floor structure is shown diagrammatically in Figure 1, consisting of a beam, BC that is simply supported on the tips of two cantilever beams, AB and CD. The system carries a complete uniformly distributed load of 4 kN/m. Sketch the shearing force and bending moment diagrams for the simply...

Tips for asking Questions
 Provide any and all relevant background materials. Attach files if necessary to ensure your tutor has all necessary information to answer your question as completely as possible
 Set a compelling price: While our Tutors are eager to answer your questions, giving them a compelling price incentive speeds up the process by avoiding any unnecessary price negotiations
Sample Questions
 1. Why is the time value of money important for the evaluation of engineering projects? Can you share some examples where this is the case?
 2. What are the reasons for enhancing drainage and what is an example situation where it is required? Explain some of the detrimental effects of drainage. Describe the types of drainage system indicating suitability criteria.
