Distribution of normal and shearing
stresses satisfies
results in normal and shearing stresses in
transverse sections.
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
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.
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.

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,
t

= 0. It follows that t
xy
= 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 D

and D

are significantly higher than at D.

Consider a narrow rectangular cantilever beam
subjected to load P at its free end:
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-Venants principle, effects of the load
application mode are negligible except in immediate
Stress/strain deviations for distributed loads are
negligible for typical beam sections of interest.

Longitudinal Shear on a Beam Element
of Arbitrary Shape
We have examined the distribution of
the vertical components t
xy
on a
transverse section of a beam. We now
wish to consider the horizontal
components t
xz
of the stresses.

Consider prismatic beam with an
element defined by the curved surface
CDDC.

Example 6.04
A square box beam is constructed from
four planks as shown. Knowing that the
spacing between nails is 1.5 in. and the
beam is subjected to a vertical shear of
magnitude V = 600 lb, determine the
shearing force in each nail.
SOLUTION:
Determine the shear force per unit
length along each edge of the upper
plank.
Based on the spacing between nails,
determine the shear force in each
nail.
