PROBLEM 4.32
It was assumed in Sec. 4.3 that the normal stresses σ y in a
member in pure bending are negligible. For an initially straight
elastic member of rectangular cross section, (a) derive an
approximate expression for σ y as a function of y, (b) show that
( σ y ) max = −(c/2 ρ )(σ x )max and, thus, that σ y can be neglected in
all practical situations. (Hint: Consider the free-body diagram of
the portion of beam located below the surface of ordinate y and
assume that the distribution of the stress σ x is still linear.)

Denote the width of the beam by b and the length by L.

PROBLEM 4.40
A steel bar and an aluminum bar are bonded together to form the composite
beam shown. The modulus of elasticity for aluminum is 70 GPa and for steel is
200 GPa. Knowing that the beam is bent about a horizontal axis by a couple of
moment M = 1500 N ⋅ m, determine the maximum stress in (a) the aluminum,
(b) the steel.
SOLUTION
Use aluminum as the reference material.
For aluminum,

PROBLEM 4.55
Five metal strips, each 40 mm wide, are bonded together to form the
composite beam shown. The modulus of elasticity is 210 GPa for the
steel, 105 GPa for the brass, and 70 GPa for the aluminum. Knowing that
the beam is bent about a horizontal axis by a couple of moment 1800 N ⋅
m, determine (a) the maximum stress in each of the three metals,
(b) the radius of curvature of the composite beam.

Use aluminum as the reference material.
n = 1 in aluminum.
n = Es / Ea = 210 / 70 = 3 in steel.
n = Eb / Ea = 105 / 70 = 1.5 in brass.

Three steel plates, each of 25 &times; 150-mm cross section, are welded
together to form a short H-shaped column. Later, for architectural
reasons, a 25-mm strip is removed from each side of one of the

PROBLEM 4.201
Three 120 &times; 10-mm steel plates have been welded together to form the
beam shown. Assuming that the steel is elastoplastic with
E = 200 GPa and σ Y = 300 MPa, determine (a) the bending moment
for which the plastic zones at the top and bottom of the beam are
40 mm thick, (b) the corresponding radius of curvature of the beam.
SOLUTION

PROBLEM 4.203
Two thin strips of the same material and same cross
section are bent by couples of the same magnitude
and glued together. After the two surfaces of
contact have been securely bonded, the couples are
removed. Denoting by σ1 the maximum stress and
by ρ1 the radius of curvature of each strip while
the couples were applied, determine (a) the final
stresses at points A, B, C, and D, (b) the final radius
of curvature.
