### Calculating stress from elementary tension and bending formulas

I need help with this problem. Suppose we have a cantilever with width $-c \leq y \leq c$ and length $x=l$ fixed at $x=0$. We know that it is loaded by uniform shear along the lower edge with ...

### Maximum shear force of metric steel bolt

I'm struggling to calculate with any confidence the allowable shear force for a metric bolt holding two aluminium pieces together. I only need an approximate figure, since I will allow a very large ...

### Distribution of shear stress in beam bending

Beer, Johnston, and DeWolf's Mechanics of Materials includes the following image of the distribution of shear stresses in a bending beam: (Axes and load vector carried forward from Fig 6.1 in the text ...

### Connection for beam very close to concrete wall

The following picture is pretty self-explanatory. I need a connection for a beam that is coming in very close to a concrete wall edge (north/south beam in picture). The embedded plate with nelson ...

### Shear Stress / Flexure Stress Formulas / Tables

Is there something similar to the Section Modulus in the Flexure Formula $$\rho_{max} = \dfrac{M_{max}}{S}$$ where $S = \dfrac{I}{c}$ for shear stress formula? So in $$\tau_{max} = \dfrac{VQ}{IT}$$...
