Bending of Beams due to Transverse Forces
In most engineering structures that are in equilibrium or otherwise, examples of beams or bars which are loaded by forces are to be found. In figure 2.1, for example, a simple type of beam is used to support a winding gear and its drive. This in turn is supported by beams. The reactions at the wheels of the travelling crane are also taken by beams, which are supported at the foundations of the building. This arrangement of workshop travelling cranes will be familiar to most readers.
