Problem 1.2-5 The cross section of a concrete pier that is loaded uniformly in compression is shown in the figure. (a) Determine the average compressive stress s c in the concrete if the load is equal to 2500 k. (b) Determine the coordinates x w and y w of the point where the resultant load must act in order to produce uniform normal stress.
