Solution 5.6-17 Ratio of weights of three beams SECTION 5.6 Design of Beams 315 Beam 1: Rectangle ( h 5 2 b ) Beam 2: Square ( a 5 side dimension) Beam 3: Circle ( d 5 diameter) L , g , M max , and s max are the same in all three beams. S 5 section modulus Since M and s are the same, the section moduli must be the same.

The brackets are adjustable and may be placed in any desired positions between the ends of the shelf. A uniform load of intensity q , which includes the weight of the shelf itself, acts on the shelf [see part (b) of the figure]. Determine the maximum permissible value of the load
