      Short Interview Question Answers –   SFD AND BMD  Q How to find  maximum moment From Shear Force Diagram? When shear force at a section changes sign (shear force is zero at such a point) in the shear force diagram, then bending moment at that section will be maximum .But when bending moment changes sign in […]
