    mcqs – Shear stresses in beams Keywords: shear stress variation- maximum to average ratio-location of maximum and minimum shear stress-distortion Abstract Shear stress in a beam varies parabolically. It is maximum at the centroidal axis and is zero on the outermost fibers. It is quite contrary to bending stress. The direction of shear stress in […]

    ** Shear Stresses in a Beam

    Shear Stresses in a Beam  Keywords: Parabolic- maximum-minimum-average shear stress-centroidal axis Abstract Shear stress varies parabolically in any cross section. It is maximum at the centroidal axis and minimum on the extreme fibers. Bendindg stress is maximum on extreme fibers and zero at the centroidal axis. Thus beams can be independently designed for maximu shear and […]
