Moment Capacity

Example 03: Moment Capacity of a Timber Beam Reinforced with Steel and Aluminum Strips

Problem
Steel and aluminum plates are used to reinforced an 80 mm by 150 mm timber beam. The three materials are fastened firmly as shown so that there will be no relative movement between them.

Given the following material properties:

Allowable Bending Stress, Fb
Steel = 120 MPa
Aluminum = 80 MPa
Wood = 10 MPa
Modulus of Elasticity, E
Steel = 200 GPa
Aluminum = 70 GPa
Wood = 10 GPa

Find the safe resisting moment of the beam in kN·m.
 

Example 02: Moment Capacity of a Concrete Beam

Problem
A reinforced concrete beam 300 mm wide has an effective depth of 600 mm. It is reinforced with 4-32 mm diameter bars for tension. f’c = 21 MPa and fy = 275 MPa. Find the moment capacity of the beam.
