Adisa,


The equations you showed above are for the combined bending and axial load on the short vertical column and are reported as Normal Stress in the Y direction.


The bending stress on the longer beam would be the Normal Stress in the X direction and the simple handbook equation you show for bending stress is correct for the straight section. Once you get to the radius section, that equation is not sufficient.


Kind regards,


Peter
