CURVED MEMBERS IN FLEXURE

The distribution of stress in a curved flexural member is determined by using the following

assumptions.

1 The cross section has an axis of symmetry in a plane along the length of the beam.

2 Plane cross sections remain plane after bending.

3 The modulus of elasticity is the same in tension as in compression.

It will be found that the neutral axis and the centroidal axis of a curved beam, unlike a straight beam,

are not coincident and also that the stress does not vary linearly from the neutral axis. The notation

shown in the above figures is defined as follows:

ri = radius of inner fiber

h = depth of section

co = distance from neutral axis to outer fiber

ci = distance from neutral axis to inner fiber

r = radius of neutral axis

r = radius of centroidal axis

e= distance from centroidal axis to neutral axis

To begin, we define the element abcd by the angle φ. A bending moment M causes section bc to

rotate through dφ to b’c’. The strain on any fiber at distance ρ from the center 0 is

ε=

δl

=

(r − ρ ) dφ

l ρφ

The normal stress corresponding to this strain is

E (r − ρ ) dφ (1)

σ = εE =

ρφ

Since there are no axial external forces acting on the beam, the sum of the normal

forces acting on the section must be zero. Therefore

dφ (r − ρ ) dA = 0

∫ σ dA = E ∫

φ ρ

Now arrange Eq. (2) in the form

dφ dA

E r∫ − ∫ dA = 0 (3)

φ ρ

and solve the expression in parentheses. This gives

This important equation is used to find the location of the neutral axis with respect to

the center of curvature 0 of the cross section. The equation indicates that the neutral

and the centroidal axes are not coincident.

Our next problem is to determine the stress distribution. We do this by balancing the

external applied moment against the internal resisting moment. Thus, from Eq. (2),

dφ (r − ρ )2 dA = M

∫ (r − ρ )(σdA) = E ∫

(5)

φ ρ

Since (r − ρ )2 = r 2 − 2 ρr + ρ 2 , Eq. (5) can be written in the form

dφ 2 dA

r ∫ − r ∫ dA − r ∫ dA + ∫ ρdA (6)

M =E

φ ρ

Note that r is a constant; then compare the first two terms in parentheses with Eq.

(4). These terms vanish, and we have left

M =E

dφ

φ

(− r ∫ dA + ∫ ρ dA)

The first integral in this expression is the area A, and the second is the product rA.

Therefore

M =E (r − r )A = E dφ eA

My

Now, using Eq. (1) once more, and rearranging, we finally obtain σ=

Ae(r − y )

This equation shows that the stress distribution is hyperbolic. The algebraic maximum

stresses occur at the inner and outer fibers and are

Mci Mco

σi = σo = (7)

Aeri Aero

The sign convention used is that M is positive if it acts to straighten on the beam. The

distance y is positive inwards to the center of curvature and is measured from the

neutral axis. It follows that ci is positive and co is negative.

These equations are valid for pure bending. In the usual and more general case such

as a crane hook, the U frame of a press, or the frame of a clamp, the bending moment

is due to forces acting to one side of the cross section under consideration. In this case

the bending moment is computed about the centroidal axis, not the neutral axis. Also,

an additional axial tensile (P/A) or compressive (-P/A) stress must be added to the

bending stress given by Eq. (7) to obtain the resultant stress acting on the section.

Sections most frequently encountered in the stress analysis of curved beams are shown

below.

For the rectangular section shown in (a),
