list of steel beam posts-part-2-post 2,Solved problem 4-5

This is the 11th post of the steel beams posts-part-2 which includes a solved problem 4-5 from Prof. Alan Williams’s book.

A simply supported beam of grade 50 steel is laterally braced at 4 ft intervals. If the beam is subjected to a uniform factored bending moment of 270 ft-kips (LRFD) or 180 ft-kips (ASD), with Cb=1.0.

Determine (a) the lightest adequate W shape, and (b) the W shape with the minimum allowable depth.
