(Calculate the deflection of beams using different methods)
Nature of Distribution of Bending Stress:

The bending moment at a section tends to bend or deflect the beam and the internal
stresses resist its bending. The process of bending stops when every cross section sets up
full resistance to the bending moment. The resistance offered by the internal stresses to
the bending is called the bending stress.
Difference between direct stress and bending stress:

Direct tensile and compressive stress is set up due to load applied parallel to the
length of the object, and direct shear stress is set up in the section which is parallel to the
line of action of the shear load. But bending stress is set up due to load at right angles to
the length of the object subjected to bending.
