Hi,

Here is an example of solved problem, when you are asked to find the shear capacity of nailed wooden beams, or asked about the spacing of nails. Leave your suggestions or doubts in the comment box below.

a= 250 mm, b= 35 mm, c= 265 mm, d = 180 mm, and e= 300mm. Assume the sections are uniform along the length of the beam. Find:

Solution:

Thanks!

Here is an example of solved problem, when you are asked to find the shear capacity of nailed wooden beams, or asked about the spacing of nails. Leave your suggestions or doubts in the comment box below.

**Problem:**The two cross sections (a) and (b) of a wooden beam are shown below. Both are subjected to a vertical shear force of V. Each nail can support a shear force of 20 kN, and are spaced at 125 mm along the length of the beam. Section details:a= 250 mm, b= 35 mm, c= 265 mm, d = 180 mm, and e= 300mm. Assume the sections are uniform along the length of the beam. Find:

**(A)**Maximum applicable shear force on member (a)**(B)**Maximum applicable shear force on member (b)**(C)**Adjust the spacing of the weaker member for the maximum of the forces found in part (A) and part (B).Solution:

Thanks!
