Shear
and Bending Moment Diagrams
In a Nut Shell: Use shear force and
bending moment to calculate the shear stress and axial The chart below lists the
four common types of external loading.


Calculation of Shear Force and Bending Moment Distribution Two methods are available
to determine shear force and bending moment distributions. In the direct method you simply draw free body diagrams at sections along the beam where
