Ok. There are 2 universal beams. One is 500mm deep and the other one is 400mm deep. For both beams, the top and bottom flanges are 200mm wide x 10mm deep. [SPAN of the beams is not given](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Questions is..If the maximum bending moment capacity of the 400mm deep universal beam is 200 kn.m. What is the bending moment capacity of the 500mm deep beam?

What i think is that beam's bending moment has nothing to do with its section depth is it?

So the answer to the question would be "Cannot be calculated since both the span measurement is not given."

Or there are other answers to this?

Thanks.
