ABSTRACT
The paper is devoted to an expanded-tapered beam of rectangular cross section subjected to three-point bending. The analytical model of the beam is formulated with consideration of a non-linear hypothesis of the cross section deformation. The problem of shear stress distribution in the beam is analysed based on the above mentioned hypothesis. Moreover, a numerical FEM model (SolidWorks) is developed. Examplary computations have been carried out based on the analytical and numerical models.
