Strength of Materials: Shear Flow

Shear flow is the measurement of shear force per length. The reason why an engineer might want to calculate the shear flow is because if there are bolts holding pieces of the beam together, shear flow can be used to calculate the shear force on each bolt. To calculate shear flow on a beam from transverse shear equation 1 would used. Refer to the example below.
