## 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 *w _{o}* 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

*w*if

_{o}*f*≤ 1200 psi,

_{b}*f*≤ 120 psi, and the screws have a shear strength of 200 lb and a pitch of 2 in.

**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 f_{v} = 120 psi in the beam or a shearing force of 300 lb in the screws. What is the maximum flexural stress in the beam?
