A floor system in a small building consists of wood planks supported by 2-in. (nominal width) joists spaced at distance s and measured from center to center (see figure). The span length L of each joist is 12 ft, the spacing s of the joists is 16 in., and the allowable bending stress in the wood is 1250 psi. The uniform floor load is 120 lb/ft", which includes an allowance for the weight of the floor system itself. Calculate the required section modulus S for the joists, and then select a suitable joist size (surfaced lumber) from Appendix G, assuming that each joist may be represented as a simple beam carrying a uniform load. What is the maximum floor load that can be applied to your final beam selection in part (a)?

A floor system in a small building consists of wood planks supported by 2-in. (nominal width) joists spaced at distance s and measured from center to center (see figure). The span length L of each joist is 12 ft, the spacing s of the joists is 16 in., and the allowable bending stress in the wood is 1250 psi. The uniform floor load is 120 lb/ft", which includes an allowance for the weight of the floor system itself.

  1. Calculate the required section modulus S for the joists, and then select a suitable joist size (surfaced lumber) from Appendix G, assuming that each joist may be represented as a simple beam carrying a uniform load.
