Understanding Bending Moment: The Basics!

Bending moment is a term used in engineering mechanics to describe the bending effect of a force applied to a beam or structure. The bending moment at any given point in a beam is the product of the force acting on the beam and the perpendicular distance from the point to the line of action of the force.

The formula for bending moment (M) is:

M = F * d

where F is the force acting on the beam and d is the perpendicular distance from the point to the line of action of the force.

This formula assumes that the force is perpendicular to the beam and that the beam is rigid and can resist bending. In reality, many forces act on beams at various angles, and beams may not be completely rigid, so more complex calculations may be required.
