(2pts) A uniform, rectangular-section beam of fixed width w , unspecified depth d , and fixed length l rests horizontally on two simple supports at either end of the beam. A concentrated force F acts vertically downward through the center of the beam. The deflection, δ , of the loaded point is 3 3 4 c Fl E wd δ = ignoring the deflection due to self weight. Which of the three composites in question 1will give the lightest beam for a given force and deflection?...
