Shear and Torsion of Thin-walled Beams
In Chapters 4 and 5, we investigated the stresses developed in beams subjected to bending moments and, in some cases, an axial force — i.e. those forms of loading that give rise to normal stresses σzz on transverse planes z=c, where c is a constant. It is also worth noting that the combination of an axial force and a bending moment is equivalent to an equal axial force with a different line of action (see for example §5.5.2).
