Homework Statement


Hi guys,

I have a question here, which asks me to express the maximum stress from my simply supported beam, which I worked out to be 1.165MPa, to be expressed as a percentage of the Yield strength 95MN/m^2.

I also have a follow on from that which asked me how much the cross-sectional wall thickness must be increased by so that the max stress is 40% of the yield strength.

Could someone else explain how to work this out to me please?

You will first have to show how you calculated the max stress. Your numbers show that max stress is only about 1% of yield stress, so wall thickness would decrease to get max stress of 40% yield. Please show your work.
