Shear Stress Calculator

Enter the shear force, first moment of area, moment of inertia, and material thickness. The calculator will evaluate the shear stress acting on the material.

Shear Stress Formula

The following equation can be used to calculate the shear stress acting on a straight beam.

s = (V*Q/I*t)

  • Where s is the shear stress (N/m^2)
  • V is the total shear force (N*m)
  • Q is the first moment of area (m^3)
  • I is the moment of inertia (m^4)
  • t is the thickness of the material (m)

What is shear stress?

Shear stress is a stress seen in objects that is co-planar with the material cross section. That is stress that is acting in the same direction as the cross section. This stress is only one component of the total stress on an object under force.
