Point of inflexion, Mechanical Engineering

Point of inflexion:

Define the term point of contraflexure or point of inflexion. Also define point of zero shear force?
 Sol.:
The points (other than extreme ends of beam) in beam at which bending moment is zero, are called points of contraflexure or inflexion.

The point at which we have zero shear force, we get the maximum bending moment of that section/beam at that point.
