Saint-Venant’s Principle and Stress Concentrations

Saint-Venant’s Principle and Stress concentration

Saint-Venant’s principle states that if the forces acting on a small portion of an elastic body are replaced by a statically equivalent system of forces on the same portion of the surface, the effect upon the stresses in the body is negligible except in the immediate area affected by the applied forces. The stress field remains unchanged in areas of the body […]
