What is a Structural Beam?

Structural elements capable of withstanding load primarily by resisting bending are known as structural beams.
Bending moment is the bending force induced into the material of the beam as a result of external loads, own weight, span and external reactions to these loads.
Building or civil engineering structural elements are the most frequent beams, but smaller structures such as truck or automobile frames, machine frames, and other mechanical or structural systems contain beam structures that are designed and analyzed similarly.
Beams generally carry vertical gravitational forces but can also be used to carry horizontal loads. The loads carried by a beam are transferred to columns, walls, or girders, which then transfer the force to adjacent structural compression members.
