Types of loads and resulting stresses, Civil Engineering

• Applied loads result in internal forces consisting of a shear force (from the shear stress distribution) and a bending moment (from the normal stress distribution)

• Bending stress is usually the critical design criteria

• This requires the location and magnitude of the maximum bending moment
