# Wood and Steel Section

## Problem 1010 and Problem 1011 | Investigation of timber reinforced by two steel channels

**Problem 1010**

A pair of C250 × 30 steel channels are securely bolted to wood beam 200 mm by 254 mm, as shown in Fig. P-1010. From Table B-2 in Appendix B, the depth of the channel is also 254 mm.) If bending occurs about the axis 1-1, determine the safe resisting moment if the allowable stresses σ* _{s}* = 120 MPa and σ

*= 8 MPa. Assume*

_{w}*n*= 20.

**Problem 1011**

In Problem 1010, determine the safe resisting moment if bending occurs about axis 2-2.

## Problem 1008 | Finding the width of steel plate reinforcement

**Problem 1008**

A timber beam 150 mm wide by 250 mm deep is to be reinforced at the top and bottom by steel plates 10 mm thick. How wide should the steel plates be if the beam is to resist a moment of 40 kN·m? Assume that n = 15 and the allowable stresses in the wood and steel are 10 MPa and 120 MPa, respectively.

## Problem 1007 | Flexural stresses developed in the wood and steel fibers

**Problem 1007**

A uniformly distributed load of 300 lb/ft (including the weight of the beam) is simply supported on a 20-ft span. The cross section of the beam is described in Problem 1005. If n = 20, determine the maximum stresses produced in the wood and the steel.
