Question: question 2 maximum test load nominal values 5points 1 determine...

Question details

Three beams will be fabricated during the semester with student help to be tested as demonstrations during lab. The first bea

Question 2: Maximum test load, nominal values (5points)

1) Determine the moment capacity for the beam (Mn) using the design values for f'c and fy (same as phi Mn above). Estimate the largest concentrate load (P=Ptest) that can be applied to the beam. Use a resistance factor and load factors equal to 1.0.

Question 3: Maximum test load, estimated actual values

1) Determine the moment capacity for the beam (Mn) using estimated actual values for f'c and fy. Actual material properties can be assumed to be 10% greater than design values. Estimate the largest concentrated load that can be applied to the beam. Use a resistance factor and load factors equal to 1.0. (5 points)

2) Guess for maximum test load (to nearest 50 lb): _________________
