Maximum compressive stress in developed at the top layer. And maximum tensile stress is developed at bottom fibre due to elongation of fibre.

Loaded means loaded downwards. In that case upper fibers will be compressed while lower will be expanded. Hence maximum compressive stress will be developed in top layer.

Top layer concave shape gain and bottom layer convex shape so top layer is compressive stress.

When the loaded in rectangular beam, then will be developed maximum stresses in bottom and top layer.

The answer which is given that is only true for when load is applied transversely downward.

Can anyone explain the meaning loaded transversely?

What is the diff b/w Transverse load and direct load?

If beam is cantilever then max. compressive stress will be in the bottom fibre but in case SSB max. compressive stress will be in the top fibre.

Due to transverse load the beam is sagging, so that's the compression is developed on top layer.

Max compression will be on top layer and this will decreases towards neutral layer and becomes zero at neutral layer, after that stress will be tensile and value increases and reaches max at bottom layer.

Maximum tensile stress is developed at bottom fibre due to elongation of fibre.
