Simple bending or pure bending is defined as the phenomenon of the development of stresses throughout the length of the beam due to the action of bending moment exclusively. The stress development throughout the length of the beam is called **bending stress.**

Simple bending can be explained by the below beam and load arrangement. As shown in the figure, the BM diagram of the corresponding beam arrangement has a constant moment along the beam length AB and the SF has nothing to contribute to that length.

Fig.1. Simple Bending Theory Explanation |

M/I = E/R = 𝛔/y

- The material of the beam is homogeneous and isotropic
- The transverse section of the beam remains plane before and after bending.
- The value of young's modulus is the same in tension and compression
- The beam is initially straight and all the longitudinal filaments bend into circular arcs with a common center of curvature
- The radius of curvature is large compared with the dimensions of the cross-section.
- Every layer of the beam is free to expand or contract independently of the layer below it.

As shown in the figure above, consider a beam small beam section ABCD with a length of dx. The N-N forms the neutral axis of the beam element. Section AB and CD are perpendicular to the neutral axis N-N. The beam element under the action of bending gets deformed as shown in figure-2(b).

The layers of the beam before bending do not remain the same after bending. The layer AC and BD have deformed to A'C' and B'D' respectively. The layer gets shortened at top and expands at the bottom layer. The beam layer does not undergo any change at the neutral layer. This means,

As we move from the bottom layer to the neutral layer, the length of the layers decreases. Hence, the increase or decrease of the length of the layer is dependent on its distance from the neutral axis. This theory of bending is called the theory of simple bending.

Given:

The radius of the Neutral layer = R

The angle subtended by A'B' and C'D' at O = θ

The radius of the Neutral layer = R

The angle subtended by A'B' and C'D' at O = θ

Then,

Strain Variation along the Depth of Beam

Original length of layer = EF = dx;

Original length of Neutral layer = NN = N'N' = dx

Hence, the strain in layer EF is directly proportional to the distance of the layer from the neutral axis. This relation shows the variation of the strain along the depth of the beam. The variation of strain is linear.

Stress Variation along Depth of Beam Young's modulus E = stress in layer EF / Strain in layer

The moments caused due to these internal forces must be equal and opposite the BM caused at section f of the beam.

The moment of resistance is defined as the algebraic sum of moments about the neutral axis of the internal forces developed in the beam.

If the cross-sectional area of the element is dA, then

Total Moment of resistance

**M/I = E/R = 𝛔/y ;**

The above equation is called the Bending Equation/ Flexural Formula.

Strain Variation along the Depth of Beam

Original length of layer = EF = dx;

Original length of Neutral layer = NN = N'N' = dx

From Figure,

N'N' = R x θ = dx

E'F' = (R + y ) θ

Strain in the layer EF = Increase in the length of layer EF / (Original Length)

= (E'F' -EF)/EF

= ( (R +y) θ - (Rx θ))/dx

= (R θ + y θ - R θ)/ dx

= y θ/dx

= y θ/R θ

=y/R

N'N' = R x θ = dx

E'F' = (R + y ) θ

Strain in the layer EF = Increase in the length of layer EF / (Original Length)

= (E'F' -EF)/EF

= ( (R +y) θ - (Rx θ))/dx

= (R θ + y θ - R θ)/ dx

= y θ/dx

= y θ/R θ

=y/R

Hence, the strain in layer EF is directly proportional to the distance of the layer from the neutral axis. This relation shows the variation of the strain along the depth of the beam. The variation of strain is linear.

Stress Variation along Depth of Beam Young's modulus E = stress in layer EF / Strain in layer

E = 𝛔 /(y/R)

=> E = 𝜎R/y

=> E/R = 𝛔/y

Moment of Resistance The layer above the neutral axis experience compressive force Fc and the layers below the neutral axis experience tensile force Ft.

=> E = 𝜎R/y

=> E/R = 𝛔/y

Moment of Resistance The layer above the neutral axis experience compressive force Fc and the layers below the neutral axis experience tensile force Ft.

For equilibrium:

Fc= Ft

Fc= Ft

The moments caused due to these internal forces must be equal and opposite the BM caused at section f of the beam.

The moment of resistance is defined as the algebraic sum of moments about the neutral axis of the internal forces developed in the beam.

If the cross-sectional area of the element is dA, then

Total Moment of resistance

M = ∫ (𝛔 dA . y) = ∫(Ey. y. dA)/R

=> M = (E/R)∫y^2 . dA

Moment of Inertia I = ∫y^2. dA

Hence, we get

M = EI/R

Hence, we get

The above equation is called the Bending Equation/ Flexural Formula.
