Problem 5.6-19 A steel plate (called a cover plate ) having cross- sectional dimensions 4.0 in. 3 0.5 in. is welded along the full length of the top flange of a W 12 3 35 wide-flange beam (see figure, which shows the beam cross section). What is the percent increase in section modulus (as compared to the wide-flange beam alone)?
