Question

Two steel wide flange beams with the same beam size and same span

one is fy=36 ksi and the other is 50 ksi steel

if the loads are also the same, will one of the beams deflect more than the other.

Answer #1

Problem 6 Design a 10-ft span steel wide-flange beam which that
is required to support a uniform service live load of 20 k/ft and a
uniform service dead load of 17 k/ft. Assume the beam is 50-ksi.
Does moment or shear govern?

A
three-span continuous beam supports 6-inch thick one-way slabs that
span 20 ft center-to-center of beams. The beams have clear spans,
face-to-face of 16-in.-square columns, of 27, 30, and 27 ft. The
floor supports ceiling, ductwork, and lighting fixtures weighing a
total of 8 psf, ceramic floor tile weighing 16 psf, partitions
equivalent to a uniform dead load of 20 psf, and a live load of 100
psf. Design the beam, using f’c = 4500 psi and fy = 60...

Two bullets of the same size, mass and horizontal velocity are
fired at identical blocks, only one is made of steel and the other
is made of rubber. The steel bullet has a perfectly inelastic
collision with the block, while the rubber bullet has an elastic
collision. Which bullet is more likely to knock over the block, or
are both equally likely to do so? Justify your choice based on
physics principles. Make an initial posting before replying to
other...

Two thin strips of metal are bolted together at one end and have
the same temperature. One is steel, and the other is aluminum. The
steel strip is 0.11% longer than the aluminum strip. By how much
should the temperature of the strips be increased, so that the
strips have the same length?

1.The Nearly Normal condition is met in one of either of two
ways: the sample size is large or...
a.the population (and sample) distribution are already normal
distribtuions.
b.we know the standard deviation of the population.
c.if the units we are measuring can only be positive (e.g.
weights of chickens).
d.the two samples are independent.
2.Assume there exists a sample distribution that is normally
distributed. For the sampling distribution to be approximately
normal the central limit theorem requires the sample...

You are offered jobs with identical responsibilities by two
different firms in the same industry. One has no debt in its
capital structure, and the other has 99 percent debt in its capital
structure. Will you require a higher level of compensation from one
firm than from the other? If so, which firm will have to pay you
more?

1- You have two screw drivers, one with a handle that is 8 cm
long and 2 cm wide and the other is 8 cm long and 5 cm wide. Assume
the size of the driver head is the same in each case, which one
would likely be the most effective to loosen a stubborn screw?
Why?
2- Discuss the following sentence: The moment of inertia of an
object will be greater for a...

1. Two people work together in the same office. One smokes and
the other can’t stand smoke. The person who smokes derives the
following marginal benefit from smoking MBA(x) = 12 – x, where x is
measured in cigarettes per day. The other person faces marginal
costs of breathing smoke from cigarettes MCB(x) = x. It is possible
to rent a “clean air” machine that reduces smoke from cigarettes in
the air by 50% for $10 per day. It is...

Consider two genes with different expected mutation rates due to
size. Gene 1 has a mutation rate of 1 x 10-6 in the population,
while gene 2 has a mutation rate of 3 x 10-6 in the population.
Assume that the probability for an individual to have two mutations
in one gene is 0. Also, the number of bases, n, in a gene is
large.
1. State the probability that there are more than two people
with mutations total between...

For its operation, one type of electronic device has two
batteries: a main battery and a secondary battery. The device works
with a single battery. When the main battery reaches the end of its
useful life, the secondary battery automatically operates the
device. At the end of the life of the secondary battery, the device
is no longer usable. Let X and Y be the lifetimes (in years) of the
main and secondary batteries respectively. The variable X is
distributed...
