Unformatted text preview: 05Ch05.qxd 9/24/08 4:59 AM Page 409 SECTION 5.5 Normal Stresses in Beams Problem 5.5-23 A small dam of height h 6 ft is constructed of vertical wood beams AB, as shown in the figure. The wood beams, which have thickness t 2.5 in., are simply supported by horizontal steel beams at A and B. Construct a graph showing the maximum bending stress smax in the wood beams versus the depth d of the water above the lower support at B. Plot the stress smax (psi) as the ordinate and the depth d (ft) as the abscissa. (Note: The weight density g of water equals 62.4 lb/ft3.)
