Unformatted text preview: BD is 50 MPa. 1.15 The wooden members A and B are to be joined by plywood splice plate that will be fully glued on the surfaces in contact. As part of the design of the joint, and knowing that the clearance between the ends of the members is to be 6 mm, determine the smallest allowable length L if the average shearing stress in the glue is not exceed 700 kPa 1.21 A 40-kN axial load is applied to a short wooden post that is supported by a concrete footing resting on undisturbed soil. Determine (a) the maximum bearing stress on the concrete footing, (b) the size of the footing for which the average bearing stress in the soil is 145 kPa....
