Calculation Example – Section Modulus S

A simple beam pinned at two ends is loaded as shown in the figure. Calculate the required section modulus S if σallow =1500 ΚΝ/m2, L =24 m, P =2000 KN, and q = 400 KN/m.

A strain gage is located at D on the surface of the rod AB. The average normal stress on the rod is σ when the rod is subjected to forces F as on the sketch. Assume that the cross section at D is annular and the outer diameter DEXT, calculate the inner diameter DINT of the cross section at D.
