STRESS TRAJECTORIES AND STRESS CONTOURS IN TAPERED BEAMS

This paper deals with the study of stresses in tapered beams. Stress trajectories and stress contours have been plotted for rectangular cantilever beam with horizontal top face and linear taper at the bottom face. Further research work is planned for different types of tapers (e.g. Sinusoidal, parabolic) of the bottom face of a tapered beam. /Author/TRRL/
