## Solution to Problem 509 | Flexure Formula

**Problem 509**

A section used in aircraft is constructed of tubes connected by thin webs as shown in Fig. P-509. Each tube has a cross-sectional area of 0.20 in^{2}. If the average stress in the tubes is no to exceed 10 ksi, determine the total uniformly distributed load that can be supported in a simple span 12 ft long. Neglect the effect of the webs.
