The member is pined ended, has an applied axial load of 8 kips and has a length of 24 ft. A transverse load, F, is applied at the midspan of the member due to gravity effects. What is the maximum value of F that can be applied simultaneously with the seismic load? You may igno{e_§e,afing,_§gefi and deflection con iderations in our ca eulations.

The beam has a combination symbol 20FuE10. The spacing between lateral supports for the compression face of the beam is 12 feet. The 48- ft. long beam is simply supported at its ends and the ends are braced against torsional rotation. The beam will be used where the equilibrium moisture content will be 24%.
