- σmax = (M*c)/I

I couldn't fit in the title, but this is with a

So currently I am trying to figure what occurs when two, perpendicular bending moments are applied to a hollow circular cross section (one about the z axis, and the other about y). I know that if I was dealing with a square cross-section, the stress caused by bending moment will be greatest at the corners and you simply add the max bending stress caused by each moment. But, for a circular cross section, I am unsure of the location of when the stresses are greatest. I attached a photo of what I am visualizing, thanks.
