Shear stress in a beam

  1. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A simply supported beam with its cross-section is shown in the attached figure 2.2. For the beam and loading shown, determine the largest shearing stress in the section n~n and shearing stress at point a shown in cross-section of the beam.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    So to find the shearing stress at n-n I developed a shear diagram. Is it correct that the shear stress at n-n would be the area under this diagram from point A to n-n? That being 110kN x 0.3m which gives 33kPa?
    I am stuck on how to calculate the shearing stress at the point shown in the cross section. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Adam
