Introduction
• Transverse loading applied to a beam
results in normal and shearing stresses in
transverse sections.

## • Distribution of normal and shearing

stresses satisfies
Fx = ∫ σ x dA = 0 ( )
M x = ∫ y τ xz − z τ xy dA = 0
Fy = ∫ τ xy dA = −V M y = ∫ z σ x dA = 0
Fz = ∫ τ xz dA = 0 M z = ∫ ( − yσ x ) = 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

Example 6.01

SOLUTION:
• Determine the horizontal force per
unit length or shear flow q on the
lower surface of the upper plank.

## • Calculate the corresponding shear

force in each nail.
A beam is made of three planks,
nailed together. Knowing that the
spacing between nails is 25 mm and
that the vertical shear in the beam is
V = 500 N, determine the shear force
in each nail.

## 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, τ

yx= 0. It follows that τxy= 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.

## Further Discussion of the Distribution of

Stresses in a Narrow Rectangular Beam
• Consider a narrow rectangular cantilever beam
subjected to load P at its free end:
3 P  y 2  Pxy
τ xy = 1− σx = +
2 A  c 2  I

## • 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-Venant’s principle, effects of the load
application mode are negligible except in immediate
vicinity of load application points.
• Stress/strain deviations for distributed loads are
negligible for typical beam sections of interest.

## Shearing Stresses in Thin-Walled Members

beam subjected to the vertical shear V.
• The longitudinal shear force on the
element is

## Shearing Stresses in Thin-Walled Members

• The variation of shear flow across the
section depends only on the variation of
the first moment.
VQ
q =τt =
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.

## • 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.

Plastic Deformations

• Recall: M Y = σ Y = maximum elastic moment
c
• For M = PL < MY , the normal stress does
not exceed the yield stress anywhere along
the beam.
• For PL > MY , yield is initiated at B and B’.

Plastic Deformations
• Preceding discussion was based on
normal stresses only

## • Consider horizontal shear force on an

element within the plastic zone,
∆H = −( σ C − σ D ) dA = −( σ Y − σ Y ) dA = 0
Therefore, the shear stress is zero in the
plastic zone.
