The American Wood Council (AWC) is part of the wood products group of the
American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA). AF&PA is the national trade
association of the forest, paper, and wood products industry, representing member
companies engaged in growing, harvesting, and processing wood and wood fiber,
manufacturing pulp, paper, and paperboard products from both virgin and recycled
see www.afandpa.org.

## While every effort has been made to insure the accuracy

of the information presented, and special effort has been
made to assure that the information reflects the state-of-
the-art, neither the American Forest & Paper Association

Introduction
Introduction Notations Relative to “Shear and Moment
Diagrams”
Figures 1 through 32 provide a series of shear
and moment diagrams with accompanying formulas E = modulus of elasticity, psi
for design of beams under various static loading I = moment of inertia, in.4
conditions. L = span length of the bending member, ft.
Shear and moment diagrams and formulas are R = span length of the bending member, in.
excerpted from the Western Woods Use Book, 4th M= maximum bending moment, in.-lbs.
edition, and are provided herein as a courtesy of P = total concentrated load, lbs.
Western Wood Products Association. R = reaction load at bearing point, lbs.
V = shear force, lbs.
w = load per unit length, lbs./in.
Δ = deflection or deformation, in.
x = horizontal distance from reaction to point
on beam, in.
