Flexural Stresses, Flexural Formula, Definition

Forces that are acting perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the beam cause bending stresses which are termed as flexural stresses, beside flexural stresses beams also undergo shear stresses and normal stresses. We know from the basic concepts of internal forces in the beams that whenever some load either dead load, live load, imposed load, … Read more
