The **shear center** is also known as torsional axis,is an imaginary point on a section,where a **shear** force can be applied without inducing any torsion. In general, the **shear center** is not the centroid. In this article, I am going to explain about how to determine the location of shear center in the sections in a detailed manner.

**How to determine the location of shear center in the sections:**

The determination for the location of shear center is shown below in the form of an image.

Shear center is defined as the point on the beam section where the load is applied and no twisting moment is produced.

- At shear center,resultant of the internal forces passes.
- For symmetrical sections,shear center is the center of gravity for that sections.
- We can place the loads at the shear center where there is a sliding problem in that sections.

The detailed explanation about the determination of location of shear center in the sections is shown below in the form of video.
