## Solution to Problem 598 | Spacing of Rivets or Bolts in Built-Up Beams

**Problem 598**

As shown in Fig. P-598, two C380 × 60 channels are riveted together by pairs of 19-mm rivets spaced 200 mm apart along the length of the beam. What maximum vertical shear V can be applied to the section without exceeding the stresses given in Illustrative Problem 591?

## Solution to Problem 589 | Design for Flexure and Shear

**Problem 589**

A channel section carries a concentrated loads W and a total distributed load of 4W as shown in Fig. P-589. Verify that the NA is 2.17 in. above the bottom and that I_{NA} = 62 in^{4}. Use these values to determine the maximum value of W that will not exceed allowable stresses in tension of 6,000 psi, in compression of 10,000 psi, or in shear of 8,000 psi.

## Solution to Problem 521 | Flexure Formula

## Solution to Problem 518 | Flexure Formula

**Problem 518**

A cantilever beam 4 m long is composed of two C200 × 28 channels riveted back to back. What uniformly distributed load can be carried, in addition to the weight of the beam, without exceeding a flexural stress of 120 MPa if (a) the webs are vertical and (b) the webs are horizontal?
