Why transverse loading in a beam?

Because beam carry only transverse load is perpendicular to the long column. Like a bench bridge. Beam used in room.

Generally beams are placed in transverse direction to slab. In direction parallel to the shorter span of slab. Hence loading in beam is transverse loading.

Beam also bears axial loading sometimes.

But mostly it's up to transverse or flexural loading.

IS 800 2007 provided definition for a beam as member subjected to predominantly to bending.
