Tag: bend Bending Strength

For a member subjected to flexure, the bending strength depends on the shape of the member, width/ thickness or depth/ thickness ratios of its elements, location and direction of loading, and the support given to the compression flange. Higher strengths are assigned to symmetrical and compact shapes. Flexural strength may be reduced, however, based on the spacing of lateral supports that prevent displacement
