# Shear stress in beam

## Homework Statement

Determine the Max, Min & average shear stress, and the shear force in web

V = 125kN

Note th attachment

## The Attempt at a Solution

First I calculated the Moment of Inertia

I = (1/12)(bh3 - bh13 + th13) = 3.43X10-4 m4

Max Shear Stress = (Vb/8It)(bh2 - bh12 + th12) = 28.4MPa

Min Shear Stress = (V/8It)(h2 - h12) = 21.9MPa

Avg Shear Stress = (V/th1) = 27.4MPa

Vweb = (th1/3)(2$$\tau$$max + $$\tau$$min) = 119.6 kN

Did I use all the correct equation. The example uses these equations but says they are in the web.
