Find the neutral axis and bending stress distribution over the cross-section. Figure 4.19 Thin-walled angle section Solution: (a) For finding the location of the centroid, we select the corner of the thin-walled section as the origin of a Cartesian coordinate system with the horizontal and vertical distances between the centroid and the origin denoted by and , respectively. c y c z 4 2 ) 2 / ( h ht h t h y c = = 4 2 ) 2 / ( h ht h t h z c = =--- ANS (b) Set up a Cartesian coordinate system (y, z) in the pane of the section with the origin at the centroid.
