## 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 563 | Unsymmetrical Beams

Problem 563
A box beam is made from 2-in. by 6-in. pieces screwed together as shown in Fig. P-563. If the maximum flexure stress is 1200 psi, compute the force acting on the shaded portion and the moment of this force about the NA. Hint: Use the results of Prob. 562. ## Solution to Problem 562 | Unsymmetrical Beams

Problem 562
In any beam section having a maximum stress fb, show that the force on any partial area A' in Fig. P-562 is given by F = (fb/c)A'(barred y') , where (barred y') is the centroidal coordinate of A'. Also show that the moment of this force about the NA is M' = fb I'/c, where I' is the moment of inertia of the shaded area about the NA.
