The ‘plane section remains plane’ assumption in bending theory implies
stress profile is linear
strain profile is linear
both strain and stress profiles are linear
shear deformations are neglected
As per IS 800:2007, the cross-section in which the extreme fiber can reach the yield stress, but cannot develop the plastic moment of resistance due to failure by local buckling is classified as
compact section
slender section
plastic section
semi-compact section
