Solution to Problem 586 | Design for Flexure and Shear

Problem 586
The distributed load shown in Fig. P-586 is supported by a box beam having the same cross-section as that in Prob. 585. Determine the maximum value of wo that will not exceed a flexural stress of 10 MPa or a shearing stress of 1.0 MPa.

Beam overhang at one end and loaded uniformly
