Industry relevance

This is extremely useful be it a civil structure (bridge), a mechanical structure (a lathe) or an aerostructure (fuselage). The BMD and SFD are used to assess stress, deflection and stiffness. If the bending loads are variable, then it causes fatigue. The BMD is also useful in Rotor dynamics such as matching slopes and deflections at the interface of a multi rotor systems. The BMD and SFD is also used in locally stiffening structure.

Example : No of rivets in a shear clip to avoid out of plane bending
