Problem 5.6-15 A beam having a cross section in the form of an unsymmetric wide-flange shape (see figure) is subjected to a negative bending moment acting about the z axis. Determine the width b of the top flange in order that the stresses at the top and bottom of the beam will be in the ratio 4:3, respectively.
