Problem 5.5-4 A simply supported wood beam AB with span length L 5 3.5 m carries a uniform load of intensity q 5 6.4 kN/m (see figure). Calculate the maximum bending stress s max due to the load q if the beam has a rectangular cross section with width b 5 140 mm and height h 5 240 mm.

Unformatted text preview: for each girder is a uniform load of intensity 1.6 k/ft. The girders are fabricated by welding three steel plates so as to form an I-shaped cross section (see figure) having section modulus S 5 3600 in 3 . What is the maximum bending stress s max in a girder due to the uniform load?
