Equations are derived for the non-linear bending of cantilever and 3-point bending of beams (with a non uniform moment distribution along its length) made of materials described according to Ramberg-Osgood behaviour (including and elastic and a plastic term with a hardening exponent). Moment for plastic collapse is also computed.
