Problem 5.6-19 A steel plate (called a cover plate ) having cross-sectional dimensions is welded along the full length of the bottom flange of a wide-flange beam (see figure, which shows the beam cross section). What is the percent increase in the smaller section modulus (as compared to the wide-flange beam alone)?
