Solution to Problem 595 | Spacing of Rivets or Bolts in Built-Up Beams

Problem 595
A concentrated load P is carried at midspan of a simply supported 12-ft span. The beam is made of 2-in. by 6-in. pieces screwed together, as shown in Fig. P-595. If the maximum flexural stress developed is 1400 psi, find the maximum shearing stress and the pitch of the screws if each screw can resist 200 lb.

Solution to Problem 594 | Spacing of Rivets or Bolts in Built-Up Beams

Problem 594
A distributed load of wo lb/ft is applied over a middle 6 ft of a simply supported span 12 ft long. The beam section is that in Prob. 593, but used here so that the 8-in dimension is vertical. Determine the maximum value of wo if fb ≤ 1200 psi, fv ≤ 120 psi, and the screws have a shear strength of 200 lb and a pitch of 2 in.
 

Solution to Problem 593 | Spacing of Rivets or Bolts in Built-Up Beams

Problem 593
A box beam, built up as shown in Fig. P-593, is secured by screws spaced 5 in. apart. The beam supports a concentrated load P at the third point of a simply supported span 12 ft long. Determine the maximum value of P that will not exceed fv = 120 psi in the beam or a shearing force of 300 lb in the screws. What is the maximum flexural stress in the beam?
