## Shear Stresses

•Transverse loading applied to a beam results in normal and shearing stresses in transverse sections.

•Distribution of normal and shearing stresses satisfies

•Distribution of normal and shearing stresses satisfies

•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 loading.

Substituting
