Shear Stress in Beams (continued) Calculation of Q
where A’ is the area between where the shear stress is being calculated to where the shear
stress is zero
ybar is the distance from the neutral axis of the entire x-section to the centroidal
axis of A’
The transverse shear stress is then:
τ is the (transverse) shear stress acting at a distance, y, from the
