Use your diagrams to identify the position and value of the maximum bending moment on the beam.

Q1) As a junior design consultant you have been tasked with advising a client on a refurbishment project in the Carmarthenshire area.The client brief is towards consideration of a warehouse refurbishment project allowing for use as an office space and reception area on the ground floor, with a commercial gym on the upper floor.The project is at the feasibility stage and the client can be considered as uninformed.You are to advise the client on the considerations relating to human comfort and the varying factors that influence human comfort in the internal environment. As part of your advice, you are to describe to the client how each factor is measured and state acceptable values relating to the intended use in your response.Your response must be in the form of a report and of approximately 1400 words in length. You should incorporate images/charts etc to illustrate your findings.Q2) Calculate both reactions, and then draw the shear force and bending moment diagrams for the beam shown above. Use your diagrams to identify the position and value of the maximum bending moment on the beam. (Question attached in file)Q3) The table below contains the data obtained from a tensile test of steel. The test specimen has a rectangular section B= 5mm H= 10mm, and the gauge length of the sample is 50mm .the fracture section measures b=5mm and h= 8mm.
Calculate and tabulate stresses and strain for each load
Plot the stress-strain curve for the test stample on graph paper or by producing a chart in a spreadsheet.
Determine the yield strength and the fracture strength.
Determine the maximum strain. (Question attached in file)
