Curved Beams
Curved Beam
Due to curvature of the beam, normal strain does not vary
linearly with depth as in the case of a straight beam.
Therefore NA will not pass through the centroid. The
variation of stress over the cross-section is hyperb

Unsymmetrical Bending
Bending in two planes (xy and xz.)
Neutral axis does not coincide with the principal axes of cross-section
If the cross-section has an axis of symmetry, this axis must be the principal axis.
Therefore the product of ine

Failure Theories
For ductile materials, failure is specified by initiation
of yielding
For brittle materials, failure is specified by fracture
For ductile materials, the popular yield theories are:
Tresca criterion
von Mises criterion
For

State of Stress At a Point:
6 Things Are Needed
Magnitude
Plane on which it acts (because stress at the same
point will have different values on different
planes)
Direction
Distribution over the cross-section (Uniform, or
Linear, or Parabolic

State of Stress: 3D
If we know the stresses on any 3 mutually perpendicular planes through a point, then we can
determine the stresses on any inclined plane
through the same point
Consider a tetrahedron element at a point.
Three of the four fa

Mohrs Circle
Mohrs circle is a graphical method for solving
stresses, strains, moments of inertia, on
arbitrary planes.
It is an alternate method to the
transformation equations discussed in the
previous section.
Therefore we can determine, pr
