Bending stresses, flexure formula and experimental method in pure bending. Beam design from economical and strength considerations of cross-sectional shapes. Modulus of elastic resilience and important variables affecting modulus of rupture. Yielding: discontinuous yielding and shape factor. Nonlinear stress–strain relationships for materials either deforming in the plastic range or exhibiting nonlinear elastic deformation. Shear stresses in elastically bent beam subjected to non-uniform bending moment. Problems and solutions.
