for the beam in the diagram(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

E=2.1e6kg/cm^{2}

Ixx=3600cm^{4}

find:

the principle stresses in the beam

the strains ex, ez e(45) found on the strain rosette placed at point 4

i have only managed to find the principle stress z which i found at point 1 --- 1406kg/cm^{2}where would i find the other stresss? how can i find the stress on the x axis? to find z i used -Y*M/I knowing that the maximum moment is at the wall and is -5.0625[t*m]

to find the strains i just divide by E and i get the z strain=6.67e-4 how can i find the x strain? once i find the x strain can i say the shear strain is 0?
