Components for Shear and Moment
When you select Shear & Moment from the Quantity drop-down list, the Beam area displays the components specific to this quantity. Creo Simulate uses these components to plot the shear and moment graph. You can select one of these components only if a beam is associated with the curve.
These are the components that appear in the Beam area:
P—Axial force
Vy—Shear force in the Y direction
Vz—Shear force in the Z direction
Mx—Torsional moment
My—Bending moment about the Y axis
Mz—Bending moment about the Z axis
