Tag: Shear deformations Shear Deflections in Beams

Shear deformations in a beam add to the deflections due to bending discussed in Art. 3.18. Deflections due to shear are generally small, but in some cases they should be taken into account. When a cantilever is subjected to load P (Fig. 3.51a), a portion dx of the span undergoes a shear deformation (Fig. 3.51b). For an elastic material, the
