Solution to Problem 563 | Unsymmetrical Beams

Problem 563
A box beam is made from 2-in. by 6-in. pieces screwed together as shown in Fig. P-563. If the maximum flexure stress is 1200 psi, compute the force acting on the shaded portion and the moment of this force about the NA. Hint: Use the results of Prob. 562.
