Video – Beam Fundamentals: Understanding Loadings and Reactions

Almost all objects are loaded in bending. Knowing how to spot and then calculate the bending moment is critical. Identifying the bending stress brings lots of elements together. We need to know things like:

  • Loads and reactions
  • Shear / Moment Diagrams
  • Area Moment of Inertia
  • Section Modulus
  • What parts of section to exclude
  • Transverse Shear

Let’s look at all of these components.
