Unformatted text preview: Wall support: moment and load Design of Prisma:c Beams for Bending Pick the smallest weight per unit length or cross sectional area will be the least expensive and the best choice. The largest normal stress is found at the surface where the maximum bending moment occurs. S M I c M m max max = = A safe design requires: maximum normal stress be less than the allowable stress for the material used. leads to the determination of the minimum acceptable section modulus. all all m M S max min =...
