Transverse Shear Objectives Develop method for finding shear stress in a beam with a prismatic cross-section and made from homogeneous material that behaves in a linear-elastic manner; Method of analysis will be somewhat limited to special cases of cross-sectional geometry; However, the method to be developed can be used for a wide-range of applications in engineering design; Concepts of shear stress, and shear flow will be discussed for beams and thin-walled members; The “shear center” will also be discussed.

The Shear Formula • The cross-sections remain plane and perpendicular to the longitudinal axis after deformation – assumed for bending and shear , which means that the warping shown at right can be neglected. • The assumption above is particularly true for
