# How to determine the location of shear centre in the sections?

Determine the location of shear centre in the sections:The shear centre is also known as torsional axis,is an imaginary point on a section,where a shear force can be applied without inducing any torsion. In general, the shear centre is not the centroid. In this article, I am going to explain about how to determine the location of shear centre in the sections in a detailed manner.

## How to determine the location of shear centre in the sections:

The determination for the location of shear centre is shown below in the form of an image.

shear centre is defined as the point on the beam section where the load is applied and no twisting moment is produced.

• At shear centre,resultant of the internal forces passes.
• For symmetrical sections,shear centre is the center of gravity for that sections.
• We can place the loads at the shear centre where there is a sliding problem in that sections.

The detailed explanation about the determination of  location of shear centre in the sections is shown below in the form of video.

This is the complete explanation about the determination of  location of shear centre in the sections was shown in a detailed manner. If you have any doubts, feel free to ask from the comments section. Please Share and Like this blog with the whole world so that it can reach to many.
