No.12. Flexure and flexural structures

This Text is an introduction to the most important aspects of flexure in structures. A description of the widespread use of flexural elements and structures is followed by an introduction to the modelling and analysis of beams, slabs and frames. In turn, this is followed by a discussion of the use of four common structural materials in flexural elements and structures.

This overview is expanded by reference to more detailed material, including worked examples. An Appendix presents examples of analysis under flexure.
