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

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

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.

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