##### Reference no: EM131360418

A solid rectangular simply supported timber beam 6 in. wide, 20 in. deep, and 10 ft long carries a concentrated load of 16,000 lb at midspan. Use nominal dimensions

(a) Compute the maximum horizontal shear stress at the neutral axis.

(b) Compute the shear stress 4 in. and 8 in. above and below the neutral axis. Neglect the weight of the beam.

#### Estimate the loss coefficient k of the filter

A thick filter is being tested for losses. The flow rate in the pipe is 7 m3/min and the upstream pressure is 120 kPa. The fluid is air at 20°C. Using the water manometer re

#### Rate of heat exchange per square meter between two surfaces

Two horizontal surfaces separated by a 125-mm layer of air have upper and lower temperature of 300k and 350k, respectively. Determine the rate of heat exchange per square mete

#### Determine the highest possible average flow velocity in duct

The 60W fan of a central heating system is to circulate air through the ducts. The analysis of the flow shows that the fan needs to raise the pressure of the air by 50Pa to ma

#### Rate of heat rejection to the outside air via the condenser

R-134 enters the condenser of a window air conditioning unit at 800 kPa and 35 C and leaves as a saturated liquid at the same pressure. The compressor current draw is measured

#### Use the function for thermodata evaluation in matlab toolbox
