...own weight. As a general rule of material beams, we may say that the strength of a beam increases as **the breadth, as the square of the depth, and inversely as the length of the beam.** Solid beams are weaker if the material is close around the centre, than if farther off frojp it. Solid... | |

...proportional to ^, f, and f. ( Ans. 1 (32) The load that a beam or joist will safely support varies as **the breadth, as the square of the depth, and inversely as the length of the beam.** If a beam 20 feet long, 3 inches wide, and 6 inches deep will support a load of 6,000 pounds, how many... | |
