bending moment

[′ben·diŋ ‚mō·mənt]
(mechanics)
Algebraic sum of all moments located between a cross section and one end of a structural member; a bending moment that bends the beam convex downward is positive, and one that bends it convex upward is negative.

bending moment

The moment which produces bending at a section of a beam or other structural member; equal to the sum of moments taken about the center of gravity of that section.
