Relationship between rate of loading, shear force and bending moment.

Theory of Simple Bending

Moment of inertia,  transfer theorem,  polar moment of inertia
Flexure formula for straight beam, simple problems involving application of flexure formula, section modulus, moment of resistance, flitched beams

Strain Energy

Strain energy due to axial force, stresses in axial member and simple beams under impact loading

Shear Stresses in Beams
