Maximum Stresses in Beams When solving the problems for Section 8.4, consider only the in-plane stresses and disregard the weights of the beams Problem 8.4-1 A cantilever beam of rectangular cross section is subjected to a concentrated load P ± 17 k acting at the free end (see figure). The beam has width b ± 3 in. and height h ± 12 in. Point A is located at distance c ± 2.5 ft from the free end and distance d ± 9 in. from the bottom of the beam. Calculate the principal stresses s 1 and s 2 and the maximum shear stress t max at point A . Show these stresses on sketches of properly oriented elements.
