Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain |
---|

Shear, moment, slope, deflection of elastic straight beams-table 8.1 |

W=load (N), w=unit load (N/mm), M_{0}=applied couple (Nmm), θ_{0}=angular displacement (degrees), |

R_{A} and R_{B} are the vertical end reactions at left and right respectively (N), |

M_{A} and M_{B} are the reaction end moments at left and right respectively (Nmm) |
