In most general case, the flexural centre coordinates are described by a rather complex integral equation, given in Martin Sadd's book on elasticity of 2005.
I'll write more if I find a more usable equation.
You're overcomplicating the problem. _Mechanics of Materials_ by Popov (2nd ed 1952) on page 145 has a 3 page explanation with examples, including an angle. Mostly words, many pictures a few formulas, no integral equations. First principles--you gotta love 'em.
