The shaft shown in Figure P11-4 was designed in Problem 10-19. For the data in row (a) of Table P11-1, and the corresponding diameter of shaft found in Problem 10-19,….
assess the adequacy of proposed design solution and suggest alternative solutions if you consider appropriate.
Based on the material data sheet supplied by the manufacturer of an expensive metallic alloy, a structural
engineer suggested using a 350 mm (h) × 225 mm (b) rectangular section for a simply supported beam spanning
• Using the Material data sheet (XLER PLATE steel Data sheet ASNZS3678_450.pdf) find the minimum
design strength of the material (the Density may be taken as 7850 kg/m3
• The estimated working loads on the beam are as follows:
Live load (LL) is 5 kN
Dead load (DL) from adjacent reinforced concrete (RC) slabs is 4 kN (excluding the self-weight of the
As a consultant, you are required to do the following tasks to assess the adequacy of proposed design solution
and suggest alternative solutions if you consider appropriate.
