Beam Bending Theory compared to Real-world examples

  1. Mar 21, 2012 #1
    Does anyone know of any good articles, journals or books that discuss the difference between simplified theoretical analysis of a beam under load and the actual real life effects?

    Need to do some reading up for an assignment but i'm having trouble finding anything of any merit!

    Cheers in advance for any references!

    Try: LFRD Steel Design by William T. Segui.

    It's mostly theory since it is a textbook, but I have found it useful.
