    Does anyone know how i go about answering the following question:

    A timber beam with a span of 4 m is carrying an inclusive UDL of 40 kN. The safe allowable bending stress is 6 N / mm2. Choose a suitable section for the beam.

    It's obvious this is a homework question, and you woke up a 4 year old thread to ask it.

    Make a new thread in the homework section, follow the posting rules, and people will be happy to help.
