Differences between uniform and non-uniform bending

1. In uniform bending, every element of the beam is bent with the same radius of curvature.

    In non-uniform bending, radius of curvature is not the same for all the elements in the beam.

2. In uniform bending, the beam is elevated due to load.

    In non-uniform bending, the beam is depressed due to load.
