CE Calculators > Transverse Shear Stress for different beam sections

This free online Shear Stress calculator is developed to provide a teaching learning software tool for calculation of transverse shear stress at any point of a section of structural member. Shear stress is defined as the amount of tangential force per unit area of the structural member. This calculator uses standard equation for shear stress calculation as given below.
shear stress equation

At present this calculator provides shear stress values at any point of 6 different types of sections; rectangular, hollow rectangular, circular, hollow circular, Tee section, I or H section. It also calculates maximum value of shear stress for that section. You can copy and paste the results from these calculators in the document file

Select from the following links to start calculation for shear stress for a required section
