Unsymmetrical Bending & shear stress distribution

1) The beam is subjected to a bending moment of M = 30 kN.m directed as shown in Figure 1. Determine
the maximum bending stress in the beam and the orientation of the neutral axis.

Figure 1

2) The resultant internal moment acting on the cross section of the aluminum strut has a magnitude of M
= 520 N.m and is directed as shown in Figure 2. Determine maximum bending stress in the strut. The
location 𝑦̅ of the centroid C of the strut’s cross-sectional area must be determined. Also, specify the
orientation of the neutral axis.

Figure 2

and also the product of inertia Iyz for the Z section Figure 3. determine the maximum shear stress in the beam. Figure 4 . If the section is subjected to an internal moment of M = 250 N. determine the bending stress produced at point A.3) Calculate the moment of inertia Iy and Iz. Sketch the variation of the shear-stress intensity over the entire cross section. compute the shear-stress jump at the flangeweb junction AB. Figure 3 4) If the T-beam is subjected to a vertical shear of V = 60 kN as shown in Figure 4.m directed horizontally as shown. Also.

5 kN.5) The T-beam is nailed together as shown in Figure 5. If the nails can each support a shear force of 4. Figure 5 . The allowable shear stress for the wood is  allow = 3 MPa. determine the maximum shear force V that the beam can support and the corresponding maximum nail spacing s to the nearest in multiples of 5 mm.
