## The Maximum Stress Due To Combined Axial And Bending Loads bending stresses that cannot be neglected

The deflection due to bending is large and the axial load produces bending stresses that cannot be neglected, the maximum stress is given by

Where,

P axial load, (N)

A cross-sectional area,(mm2)

M maximum bending moment, (Nm)

c distance from neutral axis to outermost fiber at the section where maximum moment occurs (mm)

I moment of inertia about neutral axis at that section,(mm4)

d deflection of the beam
