1) Above two identical beams are subjected to either 3pt bending (top) or 4pt bending (bottom). Both beams are subjected to a net load of 2P. To the right is a cross section of the beam. It is a hollow beam with a wall thickness of b and h as shown. Compare the two bending schemes. Derive expressions for the internal shear force and bending moment in these two cases, and draw shear and bending moment diagrams. Determine the locations (x and y) of the maximum tensile and compressive stresses and derive the equations that describe these stresses at the maximum locations. These bending tests are frequently used to characterize the material properties and/or mechanical response of materials, such as in the bone bending lab in the BME curriculum. Which test (3 or 4pt bending) do you think provides a better, more straightforward means of testing materials? Explain.
