I've been working in class and I'm having trouble clarifying how these two (if at all) are related. Say we have a cantalivered (sp?) beam, prismatic cross section, with a point force acting at the centroidal axis of the cross section in the direction of the longitudinal axis. Will this create a running load along the length of the member? I want to say it doesn't because the surface integral doesn't make sense to me at this point, but maybe I'm just not looking at it correctly. Any help would be appreciated.
