### Can all bending moments be represented by force couples?

A bending moment about an axis passing through a cross section arises due to an uneven distribution of stress across the cross section, like so: I have read that any given bending moment is equivalent to a force couple applied about that axis. That is to say that the curly moment arrow on a...
