Flexural Stress

Introduction

Instructor:

Eng. Mazen Alshorafa

The

beam

is

a

structural

member

used

to

support

the

internal

moments

and

shears

and

in

some

cases

torsion
.

C = T → M = C (jd) = T (jd)

Flexural Stress

Basic Assumptions in Flexure Theory:

Instructor:

Eng. Mazen Alshorafa

Plane

sections

remain

plane

after

bending

i
.
e
.

in

an

initially

straight

beam,

strain

varies

linearly

over

the

depth

of

the

section
.

The

strain

in

the

reinforcement

is

equal

to

the

strain

in

the

concrete

at

the

same

level,

i
.
e
.

ε
s

=

ε
c

at

same

level
.

Stress in concrete & reinforcement may be calculated from the strains
using
σ
-
ε

curves for concrete & steel.

Tensile strength of concrete is neglected in flexural strength.

Concrete is assumed to fail in compression, when
ε
c

=
ε
cu

=
0.003
.

Compressive
σ
-
ε

relationship for concrete may be assumed to be any
shape that results in an acceptable prediction of strength.

The compressive zone is modeled with a equivalent stress block.

In

the

Equivalent

rectangular

block,

an

average

of

0

is

used

with

a

rectangle

of

depth

a=

c

,

where

c

is

the

distance

from

the

extreme

compression

fiber

to

the

neutral

axis

Strain Compatibility

Stress at a point in member

must correspond to strain at

a point.

[

Types of Flexural Failure:

Instructor:

Eng. Mazen Alshorafa

Flexural failure may occur in three different ways

[
1
] Tension Failure

-

(under
-
reinforced beam)

[
2
] Compression Failure
-

(over
-
reinforced beam)

[
3
] Balanced Failure
-

(balanced reinforcement)
