How are the four corners 1,2,3 and 4 defined in the beam stress design?
When using Beam Stress Diagrams, you have the option to choose to show the resulting stresses at four points on the beam cross section. For instance how are these points defined, when you have a complex shape? I have attached an example of a bridge cross section with numbered corners. Which of these points would correspond to the 4 corners?
These locations could be determined or even edited from the section property definition. Kindly refer the image below.
