A beam is a structural member which is subjected to-

  1. Axial Tension or Compression
  2. Transverse loads and Couples
  3. Twisting moment.
  4. No load, but its axis should be horizontal and the cross-section must be rectangular or circular.

Answer: Option B. Transverse loads and Couples

A beam is a Structural Member which is subjected to Transverse loads and Couples.

Solution

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
