PROBLEM 4.14

Knowing that a beam of the cross section shown is bent about a horizontal axis
and that the bending moment is 50 kip in., determine the total force acting
(a) on the top flange, (b) on the shaded portion of the web.

SOLUTION

My
The stress distribution over the entire cross-section is given by the bending stress formula: x =
I
where y is a coordinate with its origin on the neutral axis and I is the moment of
inertia of the entire cross sectional area. The force on the shaded portion is
calculated from this stress distribution. Over an area element dA, the force is
My
dF = x dA = dA
