Hi there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have created lots of shear force and bending moment diagrams for simply supported beams. I have used the maximum value on the bending mement diagram for bending and stress equations, but I have never found any real use for the shear force diagram. Yes they tell you the distribution of shear force along a beam but what can that be used for?
