The structure shown below is made of structural A-36 steel. The left post is a solid round steel member with a diameter of 6 inches. The right post is a square steel member which is 6 inches square. The horizontal member is a solid steel beam with a height of 12 inches and a width of 3 inches.

a) Determine the maximum load, P, that the structure can carry.

b) Determine the maximum deflection of point A as the failure load is approached

C) Clearly show which member is causing the failure.

#### List assumptions for the other variables of the hydro logic

Estimate the amount of depression storage (inches and cubic feet) in a 6-arce parking lot using the following rainfall and discharge data. The discharge data were measured at the only outlet in the parking lot.

#### Calculate maximum compressive and maximum tensile stresses

Consider a wide flange steel beam of size W10x60 subjected to a negative bending moment of 24 kip ft. Calculate the maximum compressive and maximum tensile stresses and indicate where the stress will be tensile and where compressive.

#### Compute the circumferential stress to which the wall

The length of a reading room in a library is 10 m and its breadth is 8 m. Compute the distributed live load, assuming the basic value of the load to be 2873 N/m2.

#### Determine what is the present worth of benefit

A flood control project has a construction cost during the first year of \$10 million, during the second year \$6 million, and during the third year \$2 million. It is completed at the end of the third year and thereafter incurs an annual operating c..

#### If you make decision by maximizing the expected

A manufacturing firm is considering two mutually exclusive projects. Both projects have an economic service life of one year, with no salvage value. The first cost of Project 1 is \$1000 and the first cost of project 2 is \$800. The Net year for each p..

#### What fraction of the total ammonia-nitrogen is in volatile

Ammonia is a gas whose smell we detect in manure, cleaning products, and other things. The concentration of this noxious gas can be controlled by regulating the pH of the water because only the non-protonated form, NH3, is volatile.

#### What is the future worth of per year of each plan at age 85

Mike and Susan hope to retire a few years early, they decided to pay closer attention to the predicted amount of retirement benefits and do some analyses on the numbers.

#### Determine the amount of coal used per day if the heat of

A coal fired power plant can be modeled as a heat engine. If the power output of the plant is 200 MW and the thermal efficiency is 42%, determine the amount of coal used per day if the heat of combustion from the coal is 24,000 kJ/kg.

#### Determine the moment of inertia of the cone

Determine the moment of inertia of the cone with respect to a vertical y axis that passes through the cone's center of mass. What is the moment of inertia about a parallel axis y' that passes through the diameter of the base of the cone? The cone ..

#### Compute the water content

A small chunk of the original sample had a wet weight of 140.9 grams and weighed 85.2 grams after drying. Compute the water content, using the correct number of significant figures.

#### How do you determine the mass moment of inertia

Two 52 kN loads are maintained 2.5 m apart as they are moved slowly across beam AB. Write a computer program to calculate the deflection at the midpoint C of the beam for values of x from 0 to 9 m, using .5 m increments. Use E= 200 GPa.

#### Calculate the flow depth y3 of the sluice gate

A rectangular channel carries discharge of 10 m^2/s per unit width, with a sluice gate. Calculate the flow depth y3, if a hydraulic jump forms downstream of the sluice gate when y1 = 20 m.
