Texas A&M University Zachry Department of Civil Engineering CVEN 444 Structural Concrete Design Fall 2010 Date Assigned: Tuesday, September 14, 2010 Date Due: Tuesday, September 21, 2010 Assignment No. 2 (100 pts.) 1. From basic mechanics (CVEN 305), provide the expressions for computing the normal stress and shear stress for a beam in bending (assuming elastic behavior). State other assumptions in these expressions. Define each of the variables and include any additional expressions needed to
