Recall from mechanics of materials that the internal forces P
(generic axial), V (shear) and M
(moment) represent resultants of
the stress distribution acting

Shear Force and Bending
Moment
Shear Force: is the algebraic sum of the
vertical forces acting to the left or right
of a cut section along the span of the
beam
Bending Moment: is the algebraic sum
of the moment of the forces to the left or
to the right

Bending Moment 1.
CH28 p355
Bending moment is a torque applied to each side of the beam if
it was cut in two - anywhere along its length.
The hinge applies a clockwise (+) moment (torque) to the RHS,
and a counter-clockwise (-)

Beam Analysis
We require from buildings two kinds of

well: then that they be graceful and pleasing
in doing it.

Introduction :
In this chapter we care for the analysis and the
design of beams ,structural members supporting
loads applied at different points ,In most cases
,the loads are perpendicular to the axis of the
