Introduction
Preceding chapters dealt with:a) determining external forces acting on a structure and b)determining forces which hold together the various membersof a structure.The current chapter is concerned with determining the
internal

forces
(i.e., tension/compression, shear, and bending) which holdtogether the various parts of a given member.Focus is on two important types of engineering structures:
a) Beams
- usually long, straight, prismatic members designedto support loads applied at various points along the member.
b) Cables
- flexible members capable of withstanding onlytension, designed to support concentrated or distributedloads.
