UNIT ? III

6 An unsymmetrical I-section beam is used to support an imposed load of 2 kN/m over a span of 8 m. The
sectional details are top flange 300 mm wide and 60 mm thick; overall depth of the beam = 400 mm. At
the centre of the span, the effective prestressing force of 100 kN is located at 50 mm from the soffit of the
beam. Estimate the stresses at the centre of span section of the beam for the following load conditions.

wide by 750 mm deep. The force in the cable is 1600 kN. If the beam supports a total uniformly
distributed load of 40 kN/m, which includes the self-weight, evaluate the cable zone limits at the support
and quarter span of the beam for the following allowable stresses. f
