Strength of Materials

Q1: When a rectangular beam is loaded transversely, the maximum compressive stress is developed on the

A every cross-section

B bottom layer

C neutral axis

D top layer

ANS:B - bottom layer

When load is applied on a beam.

Upper zone = compressive zone.
Lower zone = tensile zone.


Stress = resisting force per unit area.

So reverse the above phenomena.

Upper zone = tensile stresses.
Lower zone = compressive stresses.
