Notes on Combined Stresses in Beams

WHEN a beam is loaded in any manner, it is throughout its length subjected to bending and shearing stresses of varying magnitudes, and at any given section in the beam these two stresses give rise to combined stresses. In certain cases, where the bending and shearing stresses both reach their maximum values at the same section (cf., the fixed end of a cantilever), the combined stresses may attain values considerably higher than those due to pure bending and shear alone, and in a practical design an investigation should always be made to ensure that these combined stresses do not exceed the permissible values.
