BENDING STRESSES IN BEAMS
Beams are subjected to bending moment and shearing forces which vary from section to section. To resist the bending moment and shearing force, the beam section develops stresses. Bending is usually associated with shear. However, for simplicity we neglect effect of shear and consider moment alone ( this is true when the maximum bending moment is considered---- shear is ZERO) to find the stresses due to bending. Such a theory wherein stresses due to bending alone is considered is known as PURE BENDING or SIMPLE BENDING theory.

BENDING ACTION: σc Neutral Axis σt

Neutral layer σt Neutral Axis σc

BENDING ACTION Sagging-> Fibres below the neutral axis (NA) get stretched -> Fibres are under tension Fibres above the NA get compressed -> Fibres are in compression Hogging -> Vice-versa In between there is a fibre or layer which neither undergoes tension nor compression. This layer is called Neutral Layer (stresses are zero). The trace of this layer on the c/s is called the Neutral Axis.

Assumptions made in Pure bending theory
The beam is initially straight and every layer is free to expand or contract. The material is homogenous and isotropic. Young’s modulus (E) is same in both tension and compression. Stresses are within the elastic limit. The radius of curvature of the beam is very large in comparison to the depth of the beam.

6) A transverse section of the beam which is plane before bending
will remain plane even after bending. 7) Stress is purely longitudinal.

DERIVATION OF PURE BENDING EQUATION
PART I: Relationship between bending stress and radius of curvature.

Consider the beam section of length “dx” subjected to pure bending
Consider the beam section of length “dx” subjected to pure bending. After bending the fibre AB is shortened in length, whereas the fibre CD is increased in length. In b/w there is a fibre (EF) which is neither shortened in length nor increased in length (Neutral Layer). Let the radius of the fibre E'F′ be R . Let us select one more fibre GH at a distance of ‘y’ from the fibre EF as shown in the fig. EF= E'F′ = dx = R dθ The initial length of fibre GH equals R dθ After bending the new length of GH equals G'H′= (R+y) dθ = R dθ + y dθ

σ ь /E = y/R => σ ь = (E/R) y---------(1)
Change in length of fibre GH = (R dθ + y dθ) - R dθ = y dθ Therefore the strain in fibre GH Є= change in length / original length= y dθ/ R dθ Є = y/R If σ ь is the bending stress and E is the Young’s modulus of the material, then strain Є = σ ь/E σ ь /E = y/R => σ ь = (E/R) y (1) σ ь = (E/R) y => i.e. bending stress in any fibre is proportional to the distance of the fibre (y) from the neutral axis and hence maximum bending stress occurs at the farthest fibre from the neutral axis.

Note: Neutral axis coincides with the horizontal centroidal axis of the cross section

Moment of resistance σc σt
on one side of the neutral axis there are compressive stresses and on the other there are tensile stresses. These stresses form a couple, whose moment must be equal to the external moment M. The moment of this couple, which resists the external bending moment, is known as moment of resistance. σc Neutral Axis σt

Moment of resistance da y N A
Consider an elemental area ‘da’ at a distance ‘y’ from the neutral axis. The force on this elemental area = σ ь × da = (E/R) y × da {from (1)} The moment of this resisting force about neutral axis = (E/R) y da × y = (E/R) y² da

Total moment of resistance offered by the beam section,
M'=  (E/R) y² da = E/R  y² da  y² da =second moment of the area =moment of inertia about the neutral axis. M'= (E/R) INA For equilibrium moment of resistance (M') should be equal to applied moment M i.e M' = M Hence. We get M = (E/R) INA

(E/R) = (M/INA)--------(2)
From equation 1 & 2, (M/INA)= (E/R) = (σ ь /y) BENDING EQUATION. (Bernoulli-Euler bending equation) Where E= Young’s modulus, R= Radius of curvature, M= Bending moment at the section, INA= Moment of inertia about neutral axis, σ ь= Bending stress y = distance of the fibre from the neutral axis

SECTION MODULUS: (M/I)=(σ ь /y) or σ ь = (M/I) y
Its shows maximum bending stress occurs at the greatest distance from the neutral axis. Let ymax = distance of the extreme fibre from the N.A. σ ь(max) = maximum bending stress at distance ymax σ ь(max) = (M/I) y max where M is the maximum moment carrying capacity of the section, M = σ ь(max) (I /y max) M = σ ь(max) (I/ymax) = σ ь(max) Z Where Z= I/ymax= section modulus (property of the section) Unit mm3 , m3

(1) Calculate the maximum UDL the beam shown in Fig. can carry if the bending stress at failure is 50 MPa & factor of safety to be given is 5. w / unit run 5 m 200 mm 300 mm Maximum stress = 50 N/mm² Allowable (permissible) stress = 50/5 =10 N/mm2

We have to consider section of the beam where the BM is max, and stress should be calculated at the farthest fibre from the neutral axis. E/R=M/INA= σ b/y M/INA= σ b/y => INA = bd³/12= (200× 300³)/12= 45 × 107 mm4 Ymax= d/2=300/2= 150 mm BMmax =wl²/8= w ×(5000) ²/8 (w × 5000²/8) / 45 × 107 = 10/150 w= 9.6 N/mm = 9.6 kN/m

Max. bending moment will occur at the section where the shear force is zero. The SFD shows that the section having zero shear force is available in the portion BC. Let that section be X-X, considered at a distance x from support B as shown below. The shear force at that section can be calculated as

X x 12 KN/m A B 2.5 m 3.5 m -VB+12 x =0 i.e. -39.75+12x=0
x = 39.75/12 =3.312 m. BM is 3.312m from B. = 39.75× ×3.31×(3.31)/2 = kN-m = × N mm

(3)A Rolled Steel Joist (RSJ) of 200mm × 450 mm of 4m span is simply supported on its ends. The flanges are strengthened by two 300mm× 20mm plates one riveted to each flange. The second moment of the area of the RSJ equals 35060×104 mm4. Calculate the load the beam can carry for the following cases, if the bending stress in the plates is not to exceed 120 MPa, (a) greatest central concentrated load (b) maximum UDL throughout the span 300 20 450 RSJ 4m 20 200

(4) An I section beam has 200 mm wide flanges and an overall depth of 500 mm. Each flange is 25 mm thick and the web is 20 mm thick. At a certain section the BM is ‘M.’ Find what percentage of M is resisted by flanges and the web. 200 25 20 500

INA=2[(200 × 25³/12)+200×25 × (237.5)²] +(20× (450)³/12)
The moment of resistance (moment carrying capacity )of the entire section is given by M/INA= σmax /ymax M=( σmax × INA ) /ymax = (σmax × 7.14 × 108) /250 =2.86 × 106 σmax INA=2[(200 × 25³/12)+200×25 × (237.5)²] +(20× (450)³/12) =7.14 × 108 mm4 σmax 250

Consider an element of thickness dy at a distance of y from neutral axis
Let σmax be the extreme fibre stress( maximum bending stress) σ σmax y 250

From similar triangle principle
σmax / σ =250/y σ =( σmax × y) /250 Area of the element =200× dy Force on the element = stress × area P= (σmax ×y/250) ×( 200 dy) The moment of resistance of this about the NA equals = (σmax ×y/250) ×( 200 dy) y =(4/5) y² σmax dy

Therefore moment of resistance of top flange =
Total moment of resistance of both the flanges =2.26x106 σmax % moment resisted by flanges =(MF/M) × 100 =(2.16 × 106 σmax )/(2.86 × 106 × σmax) × 100 =79.02% Therefore % moment resisted by the web= 20.98%

INA=2[(200 × 25³/12) +200×25 × (237.5)²] =5.64 × 108 mm4
OR Total moment of resistance (moment carrying capacity ) of both the flanges where INA=2[(200 × 25³/12) +200×25 × (237.5)²] =5.64 × 108 mm4 M = 2.26×106 σmax

(5)Locate & calculate the position and magnitude of maximum bending stress for the beam shown.
5mm 10mm 80 mm Let us consider a section X-X at a distance of ‘x’ from the free end.

Bending stress is not maximum at left end (10 mm dia end) because at that end bending moment may be maximum but Ixx is also maximum.

σb(x-x) = (500 × x × Dx) / (2 × Ixx)
Diameter at X-X , Dx =5 + x/16 Dx= x Therefore Ixx= Dx4/64 =  ( x) 4 /64 M/I= σb/y Mxx= 500x, y= section x-x = Dx/2 σb(x-x) = (Mxx× ymax) / Ixx Dx/2 σb(x-x) = (500 × x × Dx) / (2 × Ixx)

σb(x-x) = (500 × x × Dx )/ (2 × Dx4/64 )
Now, to have maximum bending stress, dσb(xx) /dx = 0 x =0.1875x x = 40 mm  Max bending stress = Mpa
