Solution to Problem 532 | Economic Sections

Problem 532
A beam simply supported at the ends of a 25-ft span carries a uniformly distributed load of 1000 lb/ft over its entire length. Select the lightest S section that can be used if the allowable stress is 20 ksi. What is the actual maximum stress in the beam selected?

Solution to Problem 531 | Economic Sections

Problem 531
A 15-ft beam simply supported at the ends carries a concentrated load of 9000 lb at midspan. Select the lightest S section that can be employed using an allowable stress of 18 ksi. What is the actual maximum stress in the beam selected?

Solution to Problem 530 | Economic Sections

Problem 530
Repeat Prob. 529 if the distributed load is 12 kN/m and the length of the beam is 8 m.

Solution to Problem 529 | Economic Sections

Problem 529
A 10-m beam simply supported at the ends carries a uniformly distributed load of 16 kN/m over its entire length. What is the lightest W shape beam that will not exceed a flexural stress of 120 MPa? What is the actual maximum stress in the beam selected?
