Name ___________________________ Seat Number _____________ Rules: NO HATS! All work must be clear, legible, and in a logical order. Messy work will not be graded, period. Put a box around all final answers. Problem 1) Draw a shear and moment diagram for the beam loaded as shown below. Use L1 = 10 feet, L2 = 6 feet, w1 = 4k/ft, and w2 = 10k/ft. Problem 2) Write a singularity function for problem 1. Problem 3) Design the lightest rectangular beam (like a 2x4 is rectangular, as seen from the end) for problem 1 above. The beam should have bending stresses no greater than 12 ksi, and shear stresses at the neutral axis no greater than 8 ksi. Make the depth of the beam twice its width (like a 2x4 is.)

Unformatted text preview: Note: If you absolutely cannot get the shear or moment for problem 1, you may use Mmax = 200 kft, and Vmax = 50 kips. This will of course cost you, but its better than nothing. Problem 4) Design the lightest steel pipe flagpole to carry a load of 50 kips on its top without buckling. The pole is 16 feet tall, and can be no bigger than 6 inches in diameter. Use a factor of safety of 2.5. Problem 5) Determine the value of the Kern limit for a circular footing of diameter D. For those bums who didn’t come to class that day, the Kern limit tells how far the vertical load P can move off the center of the footing without causing tension in the soil, which of course the soil cannot take....
