(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A steel strip of breadth 50 mm and depth 3 mm needs to be bent around a drum of diameter 4 m. What bending moment is required and what will be the maximum stress produced? The modulus of elasticity of the steel is 210 GPa

2. Relevant equations

[tex]

\frac{M}{I} = \frac{\sigma _b}{y} = \frac{E}{R}

[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm able to find the bending moment by finding the second moment of area...

1.05 x10^{11}x 1.125 x10^{-10}= 11.8 Nm

however i'm stuck on how to then go on and find the maximum stress
