# Bending Stress

## Galileo’s illustration of a beam

subjected to bending, 1638.

## Galileo assumed that the beam cross-

section has constant stress throughout!
Although incorrect, his study led others to
take up beam as a worthy subject. This in
turn lead to the rapid development of
engineering as a whole.

## Galileo’s contributions to science and his

great personal suffering are well known.
Without Galileo, there would not have
been a Newton as we today. And without
Newton there would not have been a
modern physics, mathematics or
engineering.

to equal and opposite couples acting in

## Two types of stresses are developed:

(a) direct or normal stress known as bending, flexural or fibre stress
(b) shearing stress

• Flexural stress caused by the bending moment applied xy plane while shearing stress
is due to shear force
PURE BENDING AND
NONUNIFORM BENDING
Assumptions for pure bending of beam
 Longitudinal lines become curved. The lines squeezed in one side
and stretched in the other side.
 Plane section remains plane but rotate as long as deformations are
small and shear effect is negligible.

##  The material of the beam is perfectly homogeneous and isotropic

and modulus of elasticity in tension is equal to that in compression.
 There is no resultant force perpendicular to any cross-section.

Section modulus
The ratio of I/y where y is the farthest or the most distant point of the section from the neutral
Axis is called section modulus. It is denoted by Z.

Moment of resistance

The maximum bending moment which can be carried by a given section for a given maximum
Value of stress is known as the moment of resistance (Mr)
Assign. 1: A simply supported timber beam having 6 m long carries a single concentrated
