2(a) Figure 2(a) shows a simplysupported beam AB loaded with two transverse loads P
and an axial centric load F at point B. The crosssection of the beam is rectangular (b
x 2b) as shown in Figure 2(a). Figure 2(a)
(i) (ii) (b) Determine the magnitude of F (in terms of P, L and b), if the normal stress at
the bottom of the crosssection at midspan of the beam AB is zero (point k in
Figure 2(a)).
(6 marks)
If the normal stress due to bending moment alone is 100 times the maximum
shearing stress, determine the magnitude of L in terms of b.
(4 marks) A shaft ABCDE is made of steel ( G 80 GPa ) and fixed at A as shown in Figure
2(b). A torque QE is applied at end E of the shaft and a torque QC at position C.
