plate of
a column section I.S.H.B. 350 @ 674 N/m subjected
to an axial load of 1100 KN and bending moment of 70 KN

m. The safe
bearing pressure of concrete is 4000 KN/m

5.
Design a beam girder with 6.5m effective span, carrying a udl of 40kN/m
inclusive of self

weight over the entire span. The overall depth of the
beam is restricted to 350mm. The compression flange of the beam is
l
aterally supported throughout.

A fitched beam 20 cm × 24 cm is made by joining two wooden joists each
10cm × 24cm and symmetrically placing a steel plate 2cm × 20cm deep
into grooves cut in the inner faces of the joists. The steel plate is firmly
atta
ched to both the wooden joists. Calculate the moment of resistance of
the combined section and the maximum stress in steel Maximum
permissible flexural stress in timber is 84.0 Kg/cm
