## Homework Statement

Case:

-Simply supported beam with central load. L = 570cm

- I-Beam. Height = 15cm. Base = 15cm. Thickness = 1cm.

- Material = mild steel. Assuming E = 210GPa.

- Safety Factor = 1.5.

- F = 2000N.

With those information i had obtained the I = 16.56x10^6 mm^4.

Now i don't know how to calculate:

- the max allowable force before it fails.

- If F = 2000N, is it safe to use this beam.

Please help.
