In a beam static problem i am trying to understand what a moment at a point means. A force at a point moves the point in the beam in the direction of the force. What does a moment at a point do. Will it rotate the point about some axis? What is that axis. A book shows a beam with a moment at the end.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what does it mean?
