1 5.1. A beam of square cross section a × a is bent about a diagonal axis by a moment M , as shown in Figure P5.1. Find the relation between M and the radius of curvature R , if the material obeys the constitutive law σ zz = E parenleftbigg e zz + e 3 zz e 2 0 parenrightbigg . M a a y O x Figure P5.1 Using equations (5.17), we have σ zz = E parenleftbigg y R + y 3 R 3 e 2 0 parenrightbigg . To perform the integral in the second of (5.16), we first note that the width of the section, w ( y ) in Figure P5.1.1, varies linearly from 2 a at y = 0 to zero at y = a / 2 and hence w ( y ) = 2 a parenleftBigg 1 - 2 y a parenrightBigg = 2 a - 2 y .
