Hi there(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Are any one familiar with tables of stress concentration factors, or the like for short beams for different span/depth ratios.

My beam is technically not a beam, but I would still like to estimate maximum bending stresses related to normal stresses caused by bending moment (sigma = Mc/I) near the fixation. According to Roarks Formulas for Stress and Strain (7th edition p167) span/depth ratios of less than 3 does no longer give accurate results with Mc/I, but the stress distribution changes depending on the manner of loading and support. I kind of need tables with these factors or the like.

My "beam" is classic example of a short cantilever beam fixated at the left end, transverse point load at the tip.

lengt/span = 0.2

height/depth = 0.2

thickness/width = 0.04

Any one can give me a hint on this one ?
