1. A timber beam of rectangular section 100 mm deep by 50 mm wide is to be reinforced by steel strips 10 mm thick on both sides. The composite beam is simply
supported on a span of 3 m and a load of 8 kN is applied at the mid span. Calculate
the depth of steel plates if the maximum stress in timber is not to exceed 12 Mpa.
Determine also the maximum stress developed in steel. Esteel =200G Pa and Etimber
=15 G Pa.
