8 1 Introduction
As mentioned before the lateral forces produce shearing force and bending moment , producing a stress which is called bending stress (flexure stress) ( tensile & compressive). Also shearing force represented by stress which is called shearing stresses. Generally in beam design two important factors must be considered. 1 strength (stresses) 2 rigidity (deflection) The beam shown in Fig(8-1) is subjected to bending , in each cross section a tensile and compressive force are induced in additional to

## 8-2 Neutral Surface

It is the region that separates the tensile forces from compressive force i.e. bending stress equal to zero. 8 2 1 Neutral Axis (N.A.) The intersection between any cross section with neutral surface is (N.A.) The position of the neutral axis must pass through the centroid of the section.

## 8 3 Derivation of Flexural Formula

To establish the bending stress formula several assumptions are used :1 The cross section of the beam is plane and must remain plane after bending. 2 3 The material must be free from any resistance force and from impurities, holes, or grooves. 4 The bending moment of elasticity in tension must be the same for compression. 5 The beam has constant cross section. 6 The beam is subjected to pure bending. Due to action of bending moment the beam will bend, let the radius of curvature of the neutral axis at a particular section be , Fig.(8-2)

## Ze for Typical Cross-Section

The section modulus ( Ze )is usually quoted for all standard sections and partically is of greater use than the second moment of area . strength of the beam sections depends mainly on the second modulus. The section modulii of several shapes are calculated below :-

## Efficient Use of Section in Bending

In the design of beam , the selected section must be strong in resisting the max. bending moment as well as economical in weight per unit length . The condition of strength for beams in pure bending is satisfied provided that :-

Strength of materials- Handout No.8- Bending Stress in Beam- Dr. Hani Aziz Ameen

M z max Ze This equation indicates that for a given allowable stress and a max. bending moment the section modulus Ze must not be less than the ratio M ( max . ) . If the allowable stress of the material in tension is the same as
( allowable ) allow .

in compression the use of a section which is symmetrical about the neutral axis is preferred and the material from which the beam is made should be ductile. Structural steel is a good example of a ductile material. The next condition to be satisfied is the economy in weight of the beam . This is accomplished by distributing as much of the area of the cross- section as far as possible from the neutral axis of the section . For example for the same depths and areas the wide flange section of Fig8-4c , is capable of resisting more bending moment than the I- section of Fig 8-4b or the rectangular section of Fig 8-4a.

-b-cFig(8-4) Therefore , out of the three sections the wide flange section is considered to be the most efficient section this is because the value of section modulus Ze is largest If the section is not symmetrical about the neutral axis the compressive and tensile bending stresses at the extreme fibers of the material will not be equal . Beams having such sections should be made from brittle materials for example cast iron is a brittle material which is stronger in compression than in tension . The allowable bending stresses , according to

## Stress Concentration in Bending

In pure bending the stresses vary linearly over the cross section of the beam , being zero at the neutral axis and max. at the extreme fibers of the material to either side of the neutral axis. Such stresses are computed by formula
My I

## if the cross-sectional area of the beam

changes suddenly , the stress distribution over the cross-section of the beam is My I where K is the stress- concentration factor K

8-8 Examples
The following examples explain the difference ideas of the bending stresses problems. Example(8-1) A 250 mm ( depth) X 150 mm ( width) rectangular beam is subjected to maximum bending moment of 750 kNm : find The maximum stress in the beam The value of the longitudinal stress at a distance of 65 mm from the top surface of the beam . Solution Moment of inertia I= (bh3)/12 I = (0.15*0.253)/12 = 0.0001953 m4 Distance of N.A. from the top surface of the beam : y = h/2 = 0.25/2 = 0.125 m Using the relation = My/I =(750*103*0.125) / 0.0001953 = 4.8*108 N/m2

using the relation , M / I = / y = 1 / y1 3 6 2 3 1=My1/I = ( 750*10 *60*10 *10 ) / 0.0001953 = 230.4 MN/m Example(8-2) A symmetrical section 200 mm, deep has a moment of inertia of 2.26*10 5 m4 about its N.A. . Find the longest span over which , when simply supported the beam would carry a uniformly distributed load 4 kN/m run without the stress due to bending exceeding 125 MN/m2 Solution From the relation

## = My/I , M = M = (125*106*2.26*10 5)/0.212 = 28.25 *103 Nm

Also the maximum bending moment due to uniformly distributed loads is = w L2/8 = 4*L2/8 = 0.5 L2 M = 0.5 L2 28.25 = 0.5 L2 L = 7.516 m Example(8-3) Find the dimensions of beam a of a timber for span 8 m to carry a brick wall 200 mm thick and 5 m high . If the density of brick work is 1850 Kg/m3 and the maximum permissible stress is limited to 7.5 MN/m2 . given that the depth of beam is twice the width . Solution Total weight of the wall = W W = length of Span x thickness of wall x height of wall x density of brick work per m3 = 8 *0.2 * 5*(1850*9.81) = 145188 N = 0.145 kN R1+R2 = 0.145 R1*8 0.145 *4 = 0 R1 = 0.145/2 MN R2= 0.145/2 MN 0 x<4 Mx= (0.145/2) x Mx=0 At x= 0 At x=4 Mx= 0.29 MN.m 0 x<4 Mx=(0.145/2)*(4+x2) 0.145x At x= 0 Mx=0.29 MN.m At x=4 Mx= 0 Max. B.M = 0.29 MN.m Moment of resistance = M = ( * (bh3/12)) / (h/2) = = (7.5*bh2)/ 6 Equating moment of resistance to B.M 0.29 = (7.5*bh2)/6 , ( h = 2b) 2 b *(2b) = 0.232 b = ( 0.232/4)1/3 b = 0.387 m h = 2b = 0.774 m h2 b/6)

Example(8- 4) A floor has to carry a load of 12 kN/m2 , the floor is supported on rectangular beams each 300mm * 100mm and 5 m long. Find the distance apart ( from the center to center) at which beams should be placed so that the maximum stress in the beams should not exceed 8 MN/m2 Solution I = bh3/12 = ( 0.1 * (0.3)3) / 12 = 2.25 * 10 4 m4 4 M= ) /(0.3/2) = 0.012 MNm =12 kN m .. ( i) Let x be the spacing , in meter , of the beams from center to center . Each beam will share half of the load of the floor between two floor beams on either side . The length of each beam is 5 m therefore the total load on each beam ( if the spacing between two beams is x from center to center) = 12* x * 5 = 60 x kN Max. B.M. = wL/4 = 60x * 5 /4 ...........................(ii) From eq(i) and eq(ii) 12 = (60x * 5) / 4 x = (12*4) / ( 60*5) = 0.16 m Example(8-5) Fig(8-5) shows a cast iron water main 12 m long of 500 mm inside diameter are 25mm wall thickness runs full of water and is supported at its ends, find the maximum stress in the metal if density of cast iron is 7200 Kg/m3 and that of water is 1000 Kg/m3 .

From the bending moment diagram of the beam , it is found that the bar is subjected to a bending moment of 40 kNm . If the allowable bending stress in the beam is to be limited to 100 MN/m2 , find the inside diameter of the bar .

Solution Fig(8-19a) shows the cross section of the composite bar and fig(8-19b) shows the equivalent brass section . For the N.A. to be on the dividing line , the moments of the parts on each side of this line must be equal t1 1 i.e. 80* t1 *( t1/2) = 40 * t2 *(t2/2) , t2 2 t 1 t1 + t2 = 20 mm and 1 t2 2 t1 = 8.28 mm and t2 = 11.72 mm If the maximum permissible stress in the steel is 110 MN/m 2 , the corresponding stress at the top edge of equivalent brass section is 110/2 = 55 MN/m2 2 t 1 , it is evident that the stress at the bottom edge will since t 2 reach 40 MN/m2 before that at the top edge reaches 55 MN/m2 so that the moment of resistance is that which will produce the fomer stress , I = (80*8.283)/3 + (40*11.723)/ 3 = 36000 mm4 M = I / y = (36630 *10 12*40*106) / 0.01172 = 125 Nm
