In Chapter 1.1, we considered the average shear stress due to an applied shear force. However the shear stress is actually distributed differently along the cross-section in a non-uniform manner.
We’ll be looking at calculating the actual shear stress at any region of interest along a cross-section.

The transverse shear stress can be calculated as follows:
Here is how Q = Aȳ is calculated:
Let’s look at an example now.
