Unit 12 Beam stress DSV – Shear

The stresses due to a shear force applied on a line not passing through the shear center CT is calculated adding, for each point, the stress due to: • shear Ty (Jourawski’s formula) • twisting couple Mz,CT = Ty(dG + ex), calculated with respect to the shear center CT In the example above…the stresses due to Mz,CT will be calculated with the equations valid for the thin-walled open members (see the slides about stresses due to twisting couple)
