When one designs with wood, shear deflections can become substantial compared to deflections due to moments, because the modulus of elasticity in bending differs from that in shear by a large amount. The report presents a simplified energy method to calculate shear deflections in bending members. This simplified approach should help designers decide whether or not shear deflection is important in any complex situation. Author
