Hi - I have been racking my brain to try and work this out but with no avail, I need to work out the maximum allowable UDL load that a beam may carry given the following info.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Material - Timber - simply supported.

Cross section 240mm x 80mm

Allowable bending stress = 5N/mm2

Length - 4m

if anyone can guide me through the steps to take it would be appreciated

Thanks.
