Question: a timber column 8 in x 8 in in cross...

Question details

A timber column, 8 in. X 8 in. in cross section, is reinforced on each side by a steel plate 8 in. Wide and “t” in. thick. Determine the thickness t so that the column will support an axial load of 300 kips without exceeding a maximum timber stress of 1200 psi or a maximum steel stress of 20 ski. The modulus of elasticity are 1.5x10^6 psi for timber, and 29x10^6 psi for steel. Q4) A timber column, 8 in. x 8 in. in cross section, is reinforced on each side by a steel plate 8 in. wide and t in. thick
