Solution to Problem 557 | Unsymmetrical Beams

Problem 557
A cast-iron beam 10 m long and supported as shown in Fig. P-557 carries a uniformly distributed load of intensity wo (including its own weight). The allowable stresses are fbt ≤ 20 MPa and fbc ≤ 80 MPa. Determine the maximum safe value of wo if x = 1.0 m.
