## Solution to Problem 543 | Floor Framing

Problem 543
A portion of the floor plan of a building is shown in Fig. P-543. The total loading (including live and dead loads) in each bay is as shown. Select the lightest suitable W-shape if the allowable flexural stress is 120 MPa. ## Solution to Problem 542 | Floor Framing

Problem 542
Select the lightest W shape sections that can be used for the beams and girders in Illustrative Problem 537 of text book if the allowable flexural stress is 120 MPa. Neglect the weights of the members. ## Solution to Problem 541 | Floor Framing

Problem 541
The 18-ft long floor beams in a building are simply supported at their ends and carry a floor load of 0.6 lb/in2. If the beams have W10 × 30 sections, determine the center-line spacing using an allowable flexural stress of 18 ksi.

## Solution to Problem 541 | Floor Framing

Problem 541
The 18-ft long floor beams in a building are simply supported at their ends and carry a floor load of 0.6 lb/in2. If the beams have W10 × 30 sections, determine the center-line spacing using an allowable flexural stress of 18 ksi.

## Solution to Problem 536 | Economic Sections

Problem 536
A simply supported beam 10 m long carries a uniformly distributed load of 20 kN/m over its entire length and a concentrated load of 40 kN at midspan. If the allowable stress is 120 MPa, determine the lightest W shape beam that can be used.

## Solution to Problem 535 | Economic Sections

Problem 535
A simply supported beam 24 ft long carries a uniformly distributed load of 2000 lb/ft over its entire length and a concentrated load of 12 kips at 8 ft from left end. If the allowable stress is 18 ksi, select the lightest suitable W shape. What is the actual maximum stress in the selected beam?

## Solution to Problem 533 | Economic Sections

Problem 533
A beam simply supported on a 36-ft span carries a uniformly distributed load of 2000 lb/ft over the middle 18 ft. Using an allowable stress of 20 ksi, determine the lightest suitable W shape beam. What is the actual maximum stress in the selected beam?

## Solution to Problem 530 | Economic Sections

Problem 530
Repeat Prob. 529 if the distributed load is 12 kN/m and the length of the beam is 8 m.

## Solution to Problem 529 | Economic Sections

Problem 529
A 10-m beam simply supported at the ends carries a uniformly distributed load of 16 kN/m over its entire length. What is the lightest W shape beam that will not exceed a flexural stress of 120 MPa? What is the actual maximum stress in the beam selected?
