The results of stress analysis of angled members subjected to pure flexure are presented. The stress analysis was performed using the ANSYS finite element program. Stress concentration factors varying from 1.25 to 2.5 can be expected at the reentrant corner of the member depending on the ratio of the fillet radius to the width and the deviating angle.
