452 CHAPTER 5 Stresses in Beams (Basic Topics) Problem 5.8-12 A wood beam ABC with simple supports at A and B and an overhang BC has height h ± 300 mm (see figure). The length of the main span of the beam is L ± 3.6 m and the length of the overhang is L /3 ± 1.2 m. The beam supports a concentrated load 3 P ± 18 kN at the midpoint of the main span and a moment PL /2 ± 10.8 kN . m at the free end of the overhang. The wood has weight density g ± 5.5 kN/m 3 . (a) Determine the required width b of the beam based upon an allowable bending stress of 8.2 MPa. (b) Determine the required width based upon an allowable shear stress of 0.7 MPa. Solution 5.8-12 Numerical data: Reactions, max. shear and moment equations (a) R EQUIRED WIDTH b BASED UPON BENDING STRESS M max ± M B ± PL 2 s allow ± 8.2 MPa M B ± PL 2 M D ± R A
