## Calculating Maximum Bending Stress in an H-Beam

Calculating the maximum bending stress in an H-beam is a fundamental aspect of structural engineering and design. It ensures that a beam can safely support the loads it will experience in real-world applications.

To perform this calculation, engineers and designers must first identify the location of the maximum bending moment, determine the distance to the neutral axis (c), and find the moment of inertia (I) of the beam’s cross-section.
