Bending Stress (σ) on Beam Formula & Calculator

Bending Stress (σ) on Beam Calculation

M - Moment of axis (Nm)
y - Perpendicular distance to natural axis (m)
Ix - Second moment area of natural axis (m4)

Bending stress (σ) on beams calculator - formula & step by step calculation to find the bending stress on beams supported by the two neutral axis. &sigma = (M x y)/Ix. Moment of natural axis M in Nm, perpendicular distance to neutral axis in m & second moment area of neutral axis Ix are the key terms of this calculation.


The below mathematical formula is used to calculate bending stress of a beam in mechanical engineering to find the strength of materials. Besides, the step by step calculation for each calculation performed by using this calculator let the users to know how to perform bending stress calculation.
formula to calculate bending stress of beam

In the field of stength of materials in mechanical engineering, while working with the design of material selection or design, it's important to analyse bending stress of the beams. The above formula & step by step calculation may be useful for users to understand how the values are being used in the formula to find the bending stress of the beam, however, when it comes to online for quick calculations, this horizontal bending stress (σ) calculator helps the user to perform & verify such strength of materials calculations as quick as possible.
