Neutral axis in a composite beam

  1. Aug 23, 2009 #1
    Does it correspond with the centroid of the transformed section? For example, if a wood beam had a steel plate fixed along the bottom, would the neutral axis be lower than that of a pure wood beam of similar cross section?

    Any links showing example probs would be nice too. Sorry that this is a little more S.E. type of question.
