Each beam has length L1 2.1 m, width b, and height h 4b/3. The dimensions of the balcon floor are L1 * L2, with L2 2.5 m. The design load is 5.5 kPa acting over the entire floor area. (This load accounts for all loads except the weights of the cantilever beams, which have a weight density g 5.5 kN/m3.) The allowable bending stress in the cantilevers is 15 MPa. Assuming that the middle cantilever supports 50% of the load and each outer cantilever supports 25% of the load, determine the required dimensions b and h.
