Unformatted text preview: and 60 ksi for brass. Find the maximum bending moment that can be applied to a beam made with this cross-section. 6 in. brass aluminum steel H.16: A 10 ft long beam is designed to support a uniform distributed load of 400 pounds per foot along its entire length. The beam is simply supported at both ends and is composed of a single piece of white pine (S u = 7.5 ksi) reinforced on the top and bottom with high-strength steel straps (S u = 125 ksi). The white pine has a square 4 in × 4 in cross-section, and the steel straps are each 3 in wide by 0.25 in thick. Determine the overall safety factor of this arrangement....
