Calculate the maximum allowable shear force Vmax for the girder. The welded steel girder is having the cross section shown in the figure. It is fabricated of two 500 mm x 50 mm flange plates and a 500 mm x 50 mm web plate. The plates are joined by four fillet welds that run continuously at the length of the girder. Each weld has an allowable load in shear of 2000 kN/m.
