So there are some things that I feel are important for engineers to just know. Though the questions are basic it may help students with some fundamentals. QUESTION 1 A cantilever beam is loaded at its free end as seen in the attached Figure. What and where is the maximum normal stress in the beam? QUESTION 2 Same cantilever beam from Question 1. What and where is the maximum shear stress? Answer as clearly as possibly for others. Define all values used (i.e. L = length of beam, A = cross-sectional area) and mention any assumptions made.
