Problem 5.12-10 A flying buttress transmits a load P 5 25 kN, acting at an angle of 60° to the horizontal, to the top of a vertical buttress AB (see figure). The vertical buttress has height h 5 5.0 m and rectangular cross section of thickness t 5 1.5 m and width b 5 1.0 m (perpendicular to the plane of the figure). The stone used in the construction weighs g 5 26 kN/m 3 . What is the required weight W of the pedestal and statue above the vertical buttress (that is, above section A ) to avoid any tensile stresses in the vertical buttress?

The height of the wall is h 5 6.0 ft and the thickness of the wall is t 5 1.0 ft. (a) Determine the maximum tensile and compressive stresses s t and s c , respectively, at the base of the wall when the water level reaches the top ( d 5 h ). Assume plain concrete has weight density g c 5 145 lb/ft 3 . (b) Determine the maximum permissible depth d max of the water if there is to be no tension in the concrete. h d t
