A simply supported steel beam spans 9 m. It carries a uniformly distributed load of 10 kN/m, beam weight already included.
1. What is the maximum flexural stress (MPa) in the beam?
2. To prevent excessive deflection, the beam is propped at midspan using a pipe column. Find the resulting axial stress (MPa) in the column
3. How much is the maximum bending stress (MPa) in the propped beam?
