    COMBINED AXIAL AND BENDING LOADS CLASS NOTES

    COMBINED AXIAL AND BENDING LOADS CLASS NOTES It is applicable for a beam column. A beam carries transverse loads (bending loads) and a column carries an axial compressive load. Examples of such beams are chimneys, dams, retaining wall, trees, poles and building structures. Axial compressive load is due to the self weight and the bending […]

    MIDDLE THIRD & MIDDLE QUARTER RULE CLASS NOTES

      MIDDLE THIRD & MIDDLE QUARTER RULE CLASS NOTES It is applicable when bending is combined with axial loading.  Eccentric loading also cause bending and axial loading combined. In such cases, maximum  and minimum stresses will co-exist in the outermost fibers. Maximum stress σmax = M/Z + P/A= Maximum compressive Minimum stress σmin = M/Z – […]

    BENDING & AXIAL LOADING COMBINED MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS (MCQ) WITH ANSWERS

    BENDING & AXIAL LOADING COMBINED MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS (MCQ) WITH ANSWERS  MCQ increases understanding and clarity. Bending and axial loading is equivalent to eccentric loading. Complex stresses produce under bending and axial loading co-exist. These complex stresses reduce to simple stresses. After that complete the design. Fig. Axial & Bending loading Combined (P+M) Fig. Eccentric […]
