6- A structure (frame) is supported by the ground as shown. The soil under the supports of the structure can resist a maximum pressure of . If the area of each foundation under each support of the structure is , determine the maximum intensity () of the load (applied over the span of the structure) that does not cause pressure higher than the maximum permissible pressure of the soil under the supports (foundations). Assume that the pressure caused by the foundations is uniformly distributed on the soil underneath.
