    Short Interview Question Answers – SFD AND BMD

      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 […]

    Shear Force and Bending Moment Diagrams-2

    SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT DIAGRAMS–2 SHEAR FORCE ON A BEAM It is the NET VERTICALLY UPWARDS FORCE OR NET VERTICALLY DOWNWARDS FORCE due to the all the forces acting only on one side of the point being considered. Only after finding the shear force at various points on the beam, the S.F.D. can be drawn. From […]

    Shear Force and Bending Moment Diagrams-1

    SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT DIAGRAMS – 1  DEFINITION OF A BEAM Beam is a most important member of a machine, vehicle or a structure. Normally it is horizontal but it can be in any orientation i.e. at any angle with the horizontal. All loads must be perpendicular to the length of the beam. Such […]
