Problem 1009 | Width of aluminum plate reinforcement for the wood section to resist 14 kN-m moment

Problem 1009
A timber beam 150 mm wide by 200 mm deep is to be reinforced at the top and bottom by aluminum plates 6 mm thick. Determine the width of the aluminum plates if the beam is to resist a moment of 14 kN·m. Assume n = 5 and take the allowable stresses as 10 MPa and 80 MPa in the wood and aluminum, respectively.
 

Problem 1005 | Maximum concentrated load at the midspan that the reinforced timber beam can carry

Problem 1005
A timber beam 6 in. by 10 in. is reinforced only at the bottom by a steel plate as shown in Fig. P-1005. Determine the concentrated load that can be applied at the center of a simply supported span 18 ft long if n = 20, fs ≤ 18 ksi and fw ≤ 1200 psi. Show that the neutral axis is 7.1 in. below the top and that INA = 1160 in.4.

Problem 1002 | Increase in moment capacity due to steel plate reinforcement Jhun Vert Sun, 04/26/2020 - 12:27 am

Problem 1002
A timber beam is reinforced with steel plates rigidly attached at the top and bottom as shown in Fig. P-1002. By what amount is moment increased by the reinforcement if n = 15 and the allowable stresses in the wood and steel are 8 MPa and 120 MPa, respectively?
