Compute the shear stresses due to the vertical shear force Vy=1.0 lb


          Analytical solution:

 tsy: average transverse shear at level y in section;

mp: the first moment, with respect to the neutral axis, of the the cross sectional area above the level y;

Iy: moment of inertia of the entire cross section, taken with respect to the neutral axis;

: the width of the cross section at level y.
