Stresses in Beam (Basic Topics)

5.1 Introduction
Beam : loads acting transversely to the longitudinal axis
the loads create shear forces and bending
moments, stresses and strains due to
and

V

M are discussed in this chapter

lateral loads acting on a beam cause the
beam to bend, thereby deforming the axis of
the beam into curve line, this is known as
the deflection curve of the beam
the beams are assumed to be symmetric about x-y

plane, i.e.

y-axis

is an axis of symmetric of the cross section, all loads are assumed to act in
the x-y plane, then the bending deflection occurs in the same plane, it is
known as the plane of bending
the deflection of the beam is the displacement of that point from its
original position, measured in y direction

its axis is bent into a circular curve, cross

(plane remains plane can be established by experimental result)
∵ the symmetry of the beam and loading, it requires that all elements of
the beam deform in an identical manner (∴ the curve is circular), this are
valid for any material (elastic or inelastic)
due to bending deformation, cross sections

longitudinal lines on the convex (lower) side (nq) are elongated, and on
the concave (upper) side (mp) are shortened
the surface

ss

in which longitudinal lines do not change in length is

called the neutral surface, its intersection with the cross-sectional plane is
called neutral axis, for instance, the

z axis is the neutral axis of the cross
