Solution to Problem 589 | Design for Flexure and Shear

Problem 589
A channel section carries a concentrated loads W and a total distributed load of 4W as shown in Fig. P-589. Verify that the NA is 2.17 in. above the bottom and that INA = 62 in4. Use these values to determine the maximum value of W that will not exceed allowable stresses in tension of 6,000 psi, in compression of 10,000 psi, or in shear of 8,000 psi.
