In a square beam loaded longitudinally, shear develops
on middle fibre along horizontal plane
on lower fibre along horizontal plane
on top fibre along vertical plane
equally on each fibre along horizontal plane
none of these.
Answer: Option
No answer description is available. Let's discuss.

It should be maximum towards the neutral axis.

As shear stress parabolically decreases from the center if we cut beam horizontally the stress is equal. Everywhere is D is correct.

Due to longitudinal load in the beam shear force will not develop. Only due to transverse load shear force and bending moment will develop.

Shouldn't it be (A - on middle fibre along horizontal plane) as shear stress is max at NA.

Please explain.

Option E is correct.

Shear stress is Maximum at NA and decreases parabolically towards the edge.

I think it should be increase towards neutral axis.
