## Orientation of neutral axis

Since the angle shape has no axis of symmetry, it is helpful to determine the orientation of the neutral
axis from Eq. (8-23) before beginning the stress calculations:
M I + M z I yz (20 kip-in.)( 1.6159 in.4 )
=
= 0.8416
tan = y z
(20 kip-in.)(1.9201 in.4 )
M z I y + M y I yz

= 40.08

## Allowable moments based on maximum tension and compression bending stresses

Sketch the orientation of the neutral axis. By inspection, the points on the angle cross section that are
farthest from the neutral axis are point H and the corner of the angle. To compute the normal stress at
H, use (y, z) coordinates of y = 2.7182 in. and z = 0.4068 in.:

## (d) Orientation of neutral axis

Since the zee shape has no axis of symmetry, it is helpful to determine the orientation of the neutral axis
from Eq. (8-23) to help identify points of maximum stress.

## Bending stresses in the section

Since the zee shape has no axis of symmetry, Eq. (8-21) or Eq. (8-22) must be used to determine the
bending stresses. Equation (8-21) will be used here. For this problem, My = 0 and from the sketch, Mz is
observed to be negative. The bending stress in the zee cross section is described by:

## Orientation of neutral axis

Since the angle shape has no axis of symmetry, it is helpful to determine the orientation of the neutral
axis from Eq. (8-23) before beginning the stress calculations:
M I + M z I yz M z (7.3906 in.4 )
tan = y z

M z I y + M y I yz M z (4.2091 in.4 )

## Allowable moments based on maximum tension and compression bending stresses

Sketch the orientation of the neutral axis. By inspection, the points on the zee cross section that are
farthest from the neutral axis are on the top and bottom surfaces at the outside corners of the web. To
compute bending stresses at the upper point, coordinates of y = 3 in. and z = 0.175 in. are used. Set the
bending stress at this point to the 24-ksi allowable bending stress and solve for the moment magnitude:
x = M z (0.103871 in.4 )(3 in.) (0.182383 in.4 )( 0.175 in.) 24 ksi
