Consider only the bending stresses obtained from the flexure formula and disregard the weights of the beams. B Problem 5.7-6 A cantilever beam AB having rectangular cross sections with constant width b and varying height hx is subjected to a uniform load of intensity q (see figure). How should the height hx vary as a function of x (measured from the free end of the beam) in order to have a fully stressed beam? (Express hx in terms of the height hB at the fixed end of the beam.)
