### How to design the thickness and diameter of a cantilever beam in bending for both composites and metals?

The equation for bending stress is $\sigma_b = \dfrac{My}{I}$ For a thin-walled circular shaft, $I = \dfrac{\pi d^3t}{8}$, $d = 2r$ (diameter) Rewrite the equation, with $y = d/2$: \$\sigma_b = \dfrac{...
