Assignment Help Civil Engineering
##### Reference no: EM13312011

A simply supported beam is to support a uniformly distributed load of 10 kips per linear foot over the full span. The span length is 32 feet. Total deflection is not to exceed span/240. Select the lightest (economical) steel wide flange section (W shape) with a yield stress of 50 ksi. Assume the beam weight to be 200 PLF

#### Draw from memory a detail of a typical slab on grade

Draw from memory a detail of a typical slab on grade and list the steps in its production. Why can't the surface be finished in one operation, instead of waiting for hours b

#### Estimate settlement at t after the beginning of construction

The coefficient of consolidation of a clay for a given pressure range was obtained as 8x10^-3 mm^2/sec on the basis of one-dimensional consolidation test results. In the fie

#### What height difference is needed to generate the flow
