## 1. A simply supported beam of length 6m supports a vertical point load

of 45kN a distance of 4m from one end. If maximum allowable bending
stress is 120Mpa:

## 1.1 Determine the reaction forces at either end.

4m

45k
N

R1 R2

6m

4 × 45 =180

180 = 6 × R2

R2 = 30

R1 = 45 − 30

R1 =15

Therefore the reaction forces at either end of the beam are R2 = 30 & R1 = 15

I can check this by making sure the values of the forces add up to 0

15 - 45 + 30 = 0

1.4 List suitable universal beam sections that will support the 45kN load
from the attached table and then select the lightest

1.5 Recalculate the reaction forces at either end, taking into account the
actual weight of the beam as a UDL.

## W = MG So: 39kg/m X 9.81 = 382.59 N/M

382.59 x 6m = 2295.54N

2295 .54 N
∴R3 = 15 KN + = 16 .147 KN

2295 .54 N
and R4 = 30 KN + = 31 .147 KN

1.6 Determine the actual maximum bending stress in the selected beam,
taking into account the actual weight of the beam as a UDL and check
whether your section is still appropriate by comparing this stress with
the maximum allowable bending stress.

## The maximum bending moment is 4m from R3:

So BM = xR1 − = ( 4 ×16 .147 ) − ( )

= (64 .6) − (3.064 ) = 61 .54 kN

So Ζ = = 512 .83 cm 3

## 1.7 Comment on how the bending moment diagram is modified by the

addition of a UDL, sketching the modified bending moment diagram and
giving reasons.

In this problem the bending moment diagram is almost identical to the one
without the added UDL. This is because the mass of the beam as a UDL is very
small in the comparison to the point load of 45kN. On my graph I have shown an
exaggerated line to show it easier.
If the UDL was larger in comparison to the point load you would be able to see the
curve of the parabola more easily.

2. Select the lightest wide flange section that can be used as a steel column 7m long to
support an axial load of 450kN with a factor of safety of 3. Use 200MPa as the limit of
elasticity, 200GPa as the modulus of elasticity, 200GPa as the modulus of elasticity
and assume that the column is simply supported.

## To work out the second moment of area I used the formula:

π 2 EI
Pcr =

I transposed this to make I the subject

Pcr × L2
I=
π 2E
Next I put my own values in and calculated the second moment of area.

I= 2
= = 33.512 M 4 = 3351 cm 4
1973.92 N /M 1973.92
Therefore looking at my table the most suitable flange section would be 254 x 254
with a mass per unit length of 73 Kg.

## 4. A hollow, circular prop shaft has an external diameter of 120mm and

an internal diameter of 60mm. Calculate the maximum power that can
