Problem 5.5-12 A small dam of height h 5 2.0 m is constructed of vertical wood beams AB of thickness t 5 120 mm, as shown in the figure. Consider the beams to be simply supported at the top and bottom. Determine the maximum bending stress s max in the beams, assuming that the weight density of water is ± 5 9.81 kN/m 3 . Solution 5.5-12 Vertical wood beam SECTION 5.5 Normal Stresses in Beams 295 h t A B h 5 2.0 m t 5 120 mm ± 5 9.81 kN/m 3 (water) Let b 5 width of beam perpendicular to the plane of the figure Let q 0 5 maximum intensity of distributed load q 0 5 g bh Ê S 5 bt 2 6 M AXIMUM BENDING MOMENT Substitute into the equation for M: For the vertical wood beam: Maximum bending stress
