4. Determine the most economical size (based on total kg/m of beam) of a W shape beam that would satisfy the load condition as shown below. Given: ΔALLOW= L/240 and the compression flange is not
aced laterally. Ensure to draw a free body diagram and indicate the end reactions. Also calculate the maximum shear, moment and deflection based on the loading. Justify your beam selection by calculating the actual deflection based on the moment of inertia of the beam selected and indicate the Vr, M’r and the Ix of the beam selected. Indicate the edition used!

5. Determine the most economical size (based on total kg/m of beam) of a W shape beam that would satisfy the load condition as shown below. Given: ΔALLOW= L/240 and the compression flange is not
aced laterally. Ensure to draw a free body diagram and indicate the end reactions. Also calculate the maximum shear, moment and deflection based on the loading. Justify your beam selection by calculating the actual deflection based on the moment of inertia of the beam selected and indicate the Vr, M’r and the Ix of the beam selected. Indicate the edition used!

6. Determine the most economical size (based on total kg/m of beam) of a W shape beam that would satisfy the load condition as shown below. Given: ΔALLOW= L/180 and the beam is laterally
aced along the compression flange at the centre of the beam. Ensure to draw a free body diagram and indicate the end reactions. Also calculate the maximum shear, moment and deflection based on the loading. Justify your beam selection by calculating the actual deflection based on the moment of inertia of the beam selected and indicate the Vr, M’r and the Ix of the beam selected.
