The bridge is constructed with longitudinal steel girders that support the wood cross ties. The girders are restrained against lateral buckling by diagonal bracing, as indicated by the dashed lines. The spacing of the girders is s1 50 in. and the spacing of the rails is s2 30 in. The load transmitted by each rail to a single tie is P 1500 lb. The cross section of a tie, shown in part (b) of the figure, has width b 5.0 in. and depth d. Determine the minimum value of d based upon an allowable bending stress of 1125 psi in the wood tie.
