- Is it possible to calculate maximum shear stress due to bending of a beam with assymetric cross-section analytically ?

Hi,

the formula for average shear stress in cross-section due to bending is simple: $$\tau=\frac{V}{A}$$

There’s also a formula for maximum shear stress in cross-section: $$\tau_{max}=\frac{VQ}{Ib}$$

But, from what I know, this equation is limited to symmetric cross-sections (rectangular, I section, T section and so on). What about the asymmetric sections such as the L section ? Is it possible to calculate maximum shear stress analytically in such case ?
