NCEES 2008 problem #501

4 posts in this topic

Why is the answer 63 kips (ASD) / 94 (LRFD) and not 125 kips (ASD) / 187 (LRFD)???

When to use the maximum uniform load given by the table and when to use the Vn/ factor of safety (the value given at the bottom of the column on pg. 3-74 / AISC manual)???

Thank you!

Don't have the question in front of me, but I'm pretty sure that shear failure governs in that case. Max shear is 94 kips

I bet this ties into your other question and you should be dividing by two ;)

If the load were fixed at the center, then you would multiply the allowable shear load by 2. But this is a MOVING load, so if the load were placed nearest to one of the ends, then shear governs (62.5 k) as the allowable shear force would equal the applied load.
