Bending and shear stresses developed by the instantaneous arrest of the root of a cantilever beam with a mass at its tip
Description: Report discusses an investigation into the behavior of a cantilever beam in transverse motion with a mass at its tip when the root is suddenly brought to rest. Equations for determining the stresses, deflections, and accelerations that arise in the beam are also provided. This testing can be applied to the shock created in an airplane when landing and the vibrations that result.
