4.5 SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT OF CANTILEVER BEAMS

In a cantilever beam, shear force at any section is equal to the sum of the loads between the sections and the free end. Bending moment at a given section is equal to the sum of the moments about the section of all the loads between the section and the free end of the cantilever.

4.5.1 Cantilever Beam Subjected to a Concentrated Load at the Free End

A cantilever beam AB carrying a concentrated load W at the free and B (Figure 4.17) is considered. Any section x-x at a distance x from the free end is taken.
