# Propped Beam

**Situation**

A simply supported steel beam spans 9 m. It carries a uniformly distributed load of 10 kN/m, beam weight already included.

**Given Beam Properties:**

Area = 8,530 mm

^{2}

Depth = 306 mm

Flange Width = 204 mm

Flange Thickness = 14.6 mm

Moment of Inertia,

*I*= 145 × 10

_{x}^{6}mm

Modulus of Elasticity,

*E*= 200 GPa

1. What is the maximum flexural stress (MPa) in the beam?

A. 107 | C. 142 |

B. 54 | D. 71 |

2. To prevent excessive deflection, the beam is propped at midspan using a pipe column. Find the resulting axial stress (MPa) in the column

**Given Column Properties:**

## Problem 725 | Propped beam with partially restrained wall and settling simple support

**Problem 725**

If the support under the propped beam in Problem 724 settles an amount $\delta$, show that the propped reaction decreases by $3EI\delta / L^3$.
