Answer: Option B. Transverse loads and Couples
A beam is a Structural Member which is subjected to Transverse loads and Couples.
A beam is a structural member which is subjected to Transverse loads and Couples. Transverse load: The loads which act in the transverse direction of a beam are called transverse loads.
- Transverse load when acts on a longitudinal axis generate a Bending moment
- Transverse load when acts on a transverse axis generate Torque
Couple: Two parallel forces having the same magnitude but opposite in nature separated by a perpendicular distance are called couple. If F is the force and d is the perpendicular distance between the two forces then
The magnitude of net moment = F.d
Net force = 0
