24) from which the tip deflection (x ¼ 0) is Pl3/3EI. This value is predicted by simple beam theory (Chapter 16) and does not include the contribution to deflection of the shear strain. This was eliminated when we assumed that the slope of the neutral plane at the built-in end was zero. A more detailed examination of this effect is instructive. The shear strain at any point in the beam is given by Eq. 17): gxy ¼ À P ðb2 À 4y2 Þ 8IG and is obviously independent of x. Therefore, at all points on the neutral plane, the shear strain is constant and equal to gxy ¼ À Pb2 8IG which amounts to a rotation of the neutral plane, as shown in Fig.

Determine the strain in the direction of each stress and in the direction perpendicular to both stresses. Find also the principal strains, the maximum shear stress, the maximum shear strain, and their directions at the point. 3. See Ex. 1. 52), 1 ex ¼ ð83 À 0:3 Â 65Þ ¼ 3:175 Â 10À4 200; 000 ey ¼ 1 ð65 À 0:3 Â 83Þ ¼ 2:005 Â 10À4 200; 000 ez ¼ À0:3 ð83 þ 65Þ ¼ À2:220 Â 10À4 200; 000 In this case, since there are no shear stresses on the given planes, sx and sy are principal stresses, so that ex and ey are the principal strains and are in the directions of sx and sy.
