3. Do NOT write anything else on this questionnaire except your name, signature, and section.
4. Turn all mobile phones and electronic audio/visual devices OFF during the entire examination period. Any form of cheating
will be strictly penalized.
5. Use only a blue or black ink pen.
6. Make sure to have written your name and section on every answer sheet, as well as consecutive answer sheet numbers.
7. Start the solution to each problem on a new sheet; do NOT write at the back; and put a box on your final answer/s.

2E) Determine the bending moment the original beam
cross section can handle given that the allowable
normal stress in tension and compression in the steel is

in supporting the loads shown?
2F) If the cross section is inadequate, identical 5 mm
thick steel plates will be welded along the top and the
bottom for the whole length of the beam. Determine
the required width of the plates that will make the
beam adequate. Assume that welding will ensure that
flexural action will apply to the new cross section.
