Solution to Problem 592 | Spacing of Rivets or Bolts in Built-Up Beams

Problem 592
A wide flange section is formed by bolting together three planks, each 80 mm by 200 mm, arranged as shown in Fig. P-592. If each bolt can withstand a shearing force of 8 kN, determine the pitch if the beam is loaded so as to cause a maximum shearing stress of 1.4 MPa.
