Locating Stresses Developing in a Beam

by Jeremy Brown


Submitted : Spring 2009

We calculate the stresses developed within the beam, determining where the beam will distort the most. This information is then used to determine the type of material that needs to be used and how thick it must be to sustain the loads applied without failing.
