1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to calculate the stresses in my beam. The cross section varies (shown in the picture), and I don't know how I'm supposed to think to find the maximum stress. I appreciate tips or links to learn how to do it. Thanks. Sorry if the picture is bad, but I hope you understand what I mean. 2. Relevant equations I don't know what to do when my cross section varies. 3. The attempt at a solution I don't know what to do when my cross section varies.
