3. During construction of a highway bridge, the main girders are cantilevered outward from one pier towards the next (see Fig. Q3). Each girder has a cantilever length of 48 m and an I-shaped cross-section with dimensions shown in the figure. The load on each girder (during construction) is assumed to be 9.5 kN/m, which includes the weight of the girder. Determine the maximum tensile bending stress and the maximum compressive bending stress in a girder due to this load. (From Gere & Goodno). Fig. Q3

4. Fig. Q4 shows the cross section of a long uniform concrete wall of a water tank. Assuming that the wall behaves like a cantilever, calculate the maximum tensile bending stress and the maximum compressive bending stress in the concrete. ( density of water = 10 3 kg/m 3 ; gravitational acceleration g = 9.81 m/s 2 ).

Hint: Consider a unit length of the wall.

5. Fig. Q5(a) shows a beam ABCD, simply supported at B and C and subjected to a point load of 10 kN at A and a udl of intensity 12 kN/m over a part of it. The doubly symmetric uniform cross section of the beam is shown in Fig. Q5(b). 2.5 m

6. Beam ABCD shown in Fig.Q6(a) is simply supported at B and C. It is subjected to two concentrated loads of magnitudes 10 kN and 4 kN at A and D respectively, and a udl of intensity 12 kN/m over BC.

 (a) Giving all critical values, sketch the shear force diagram (SFD) and the bending moment diagram (BMD) for this beam. (b) The cross section of this beam is shown in Fig.Q6(b). Determine the magnitudes of the largest tensile and compressive bending stresses in the beam.

A railroad sleeper is subjected to two rail loads, each of magnitude P = 175 kN, acting as shown in Fig. Q7. The reaction q of the ballast is assumed to be uniformly distributed over the length of the sleeper, which has cross-sectional dimensions b = 300 mm and h = 250 mm. Calculate the maximum bending stress in the sleeper due to the loads P, assuming the distance L = 1500 mm and the overhang length a = 500 mm. (From Gere & Goodno) Fig. Q7
