transverse sections.
Distribution of normal and shearing
stresses satisfies
Fx x dA 0
Fy xy dA V
Fz xz dA 0

M x y xz z xy dA 0
M y z x dA 0

## When shearing stresses are exerted on the

vertical faces of an element, equal stresses
must be exerted on the horizontal faces
Longitudinal shearing stresses must exist
in any member subjected to transverse

nailed together. Knowing that the
spacing between nails is 25 mm and

## Determination of the Shearing Stress in a Beam

The average shearing stress on the horizontal
face of the element is obtained by dividing the
shearing force on the element by the area of
the face.

## On the upper and lower surfaces of the beam,

yx= 0. It follows that xy= 0 on the upper and
lower edges of the transverse sections.
If the width of the beam is comparable or large
relative to its depth, the shearing stresses at D1
and D2 are significantly higher than at D.

## Shearing stresses are independent of the distance

from the point of application of the load.
Normal strains and normal stresses are unaffected
by the shearing stresses.
From Saint-Venants principle, effects of the load
application mode are negligible except in immediate
Stress/strain deviations for distributed loads are
negligible for typical beam sections of interest.

determine the shear force in each

MECHANICS OF MATERIALS

## Shearing Stresses in Thin-Walled Members

The variation of shear flow across the
section depends only on the variation of
the first moment.
q t

VQ
I

## For a box beam, q grows smoothly from

zero at A to a maximum at C and C and
then decreases back to zero at E.
The sense of q in the horizontal
portions of the section may be deduced
from the sense in the vertical portions
or the sense of the shear V.

Third

MECHANICS OF MATERIALS

## Shearing Stresses in Thin-Walled Members

For a wide-flange beam, the shear flow
increases symmetrically from zero at A
and A, reaches a maximum at C and the
decreases to zero at E and E.
The continuity of the variation in q and
the merging of q from section branches
suggests an analogy to fluid flow.

not exceed the yield stress anywhere along
