Homework Help: Bi-Axial Bending stress Q

  1. May 18, 2015 #1
    Hi all,

    I've attempted this question however my solution seems too simple..? I have taken the point 'A' (bottom right corner of beam) as the point with max compressive stress, I am not sure if this is correct. I have just assumed this by observation.

    Everything looks OK. You caught the typo in the units for the moments of inertia; very good.
