Simple stress | Definition and application

Stress is required to design the structure. The safety of the structure is assured by this. We will discuss in this blog how we can measure the it in the

Combined stress: Due to bending and torsion

When you push or pull on something, like a beam or a shaft, it doesn’t just bend or twist—it usually does both at the same time. We call this “combined

How do we calculate the stress due to thermal variation?

Structures often experience significant temperature variations during their service life. These temperature changes can lead to the generation of stress within the structures. As engineers, it is our responsibility to

Design of tensile members

We have seen design examples to determine the tensile design strength for structural steel sections. Let us explore on how to design a tensile member and learn the simple design

Design of steel beams (Laterally supported)

In this article, you will learn how to design a steel beam. In the previous article, we discussed the different types of sections used as steel beams. We have also
