2.001 - MECHANICS AND MATERIALS I Lecture 11/20/2006 Prof. Carol Livermore Beam Bending Consider a ”slender” (long and thin) beam Q: What happens inside when we bend it? Assume: Cross-section and material properties are constant along the length Symmetric cross-section about x-y plane Pure Bending 1 #20

What is radius of curvature ( ρ )when M is applied? If it is in compression on one side and tension on the other, there must be a plain with no strain. This is called the neutral axis. Note: The coordinate system is Fxed such that y = 0 is on the neutral axis. Compatibility L 0 onneutralaxis = Undeformed Length L 0 = ρ Δ ϕ L ( y )=( ρ y ϕ Change in length in x Δ LL ( y ) L 0 ( ρ y ϕ ρ Δ ϕ Δ ϕy ± xx == = = = Original length in x L 0 L 0 ρ Δ ϕρ Δ ϕ y ± xx = ρ Note: This is just a result of compatibility. It is purely geometric. Note: ρ →∞ : ±lat Beam 2
