This is not a mathematics problem except in the very rudimentary sense of recognizing that "250" lies between 200 and 300.
Now what do "elastic limit" and "ultimate bending stress" mean?
A steel beam has an elastic limit at 200N/mm^{2 }and an ultimate bending stress at 300N/mm^{2}.
Predict the structural consequences of a bending stress of 250N/mm^{2 Can sombody shoe me how to work this out please??}
stress occurrs in beam as a result of loading it (local deltaF/deltaA).
elastic limit: maximum stress you can subject beam to and still have it return to original shape.
ultimate bending stress: stress at which rupture occurrs.
After reaching elastic limit plastic deformation starts to take place.
After 250, the beam will be permanently deformed.
Actually, the elastic limit and ultimate bending stress are self-explanatory and sufficient information to answer the question.
elastic: returns to original shape after deformation.
ultimate: max (breaks)
So if you go beyond the elastic limit but don’t break it you will have permanent deformation.
It is a mathematics question in the sense of drawing logical conclusions from given numerically quantified information.
