SECTION 11.5 Columns with Eccentric Axial Loads 697 Problem 11.5-13 A frame ABCD is constructed of steel wide-flange members ( W 8 21; E 30 10 6 psi) and subjected to triangularly distributed loads of maximum intensity q 0 acting along the vertical members (see figure). The distance between supports is L 20 ft and the height of the frame is h 4 ft. The members are rigidly connected at B and C . (a) Calculate the intensity of load q 0 required to produce a maximum bending moment of 80 k-in. in the horizontal member BC . (b) If the load q 0 is reduced to one-half of the value calculated in part (a), what is the maximum bending moment in member BC ? What is the ratio of this moment to the moment of 80 k-in. in part (a)?

Problem 11.6-2 A brass bar ( E 100 GPa) with a square cross section is subjected to axial forces having a resultant P acting at distance e from the center (see figure). The bar is pin supported at the ends and is 0.6 m in length. The side dimension b of the bar is 30 mm and the eccentricity e of the load is 10 mm. If the allowable stress in the brass is 150 MPa, what is the allowable axial force P allow ? Solution 11.6-2 Bar with square cross section 698 CHAPTER 11 Columns The Secant Formula When solving the problems for Section 11.6, assume that bending occurs in the principal plane containing the eccentric axial load. Problem 11.6-1 A steel bar has a square cross section of width b 2.0 in. (see figure). The bar has pinned supports at the ends and is 3.0 ft long. The axial forces acting at the end of the bar have a resultant P 20 k located at distance e 0.75 in. from the center of the cross section. Also, the modulus of elasticity of the steel is 29,000 ksi. (a) Determine the maximum compressive stress max in the bar. (b) If the allowable stress in the steel is 18,000 psi, what is the maximum permissible length L max of the bar?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
