Figure 2a shows a typical plot of load versus loading-point displacement obtained for a compression bending test, and Figure 2b shows a sketch of the deformation and failure process under the compression bending loading
2003) investigated the fatigue life of T-shaped, end-to-side assemblies using two-pin dowel joints by subjecting them to one-sided constant and stepped cyclic bending loading
The authors also recommend that current bending loading tests attain a minimum of 40 percent shear deflection to ensure lower COV values of the shear modulus results.
The shear stress fields that result from torsion and bending loadings are not consistent, with the shear stress of torsion concentrated around the faces of the beam and the shear stress of bending concentrated at the neutral axis (Cook and Young 1985).
25 in/min), which corresponded to conventional bending loading
using ASTM D 198 (ASTM 2001).
i] for the two edges of the board are larger than the one for the center because the bending loading puts the highest stresses on these two regions.
This occurs because bending loading creates highly non-uniform stresses within a cross section much greater at the edges than in the middle.
Results for back post to arm, side rail to back post or stump, top rail to back post joints under vertical, horizontal, and in-plane bending loadings
