SECTION 9.10 Deflections Produced by Impact 787 Problem 9.10-4 A weight W 20 kN falls through a height h 1.0 mm onto the midpoint of a simple beam of length L 3 m (see figure). The beam is made of wood with square cross section (dimension d on each side) and E 12 GPa. If the allowable bending stress in the wood is s allow 10 MPa, what is the minimum required dimension d ?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
