The transverse load ([F.sub.T]) in a stud influences the R factor; when [F.sub.T] increases, R approaches to -1.
This is interesting to know if you have bolts with transverse load and bending of the screw (not only tensile load).
A FGSW beam composed of aluminum (Al) and zirconia (Zr[O.sub.2]) subjected to a transverse load P at its free end is considered.
q(x, t)--the intensity of dynamic transverse load acting upon the rod;
This allows the compressive load to be applied at the other end in the longitudinal direction while the transverse load gets applied on the top surface of the beam to eventually give rise to a combined axial compressive and cantilever loading action.

It has been found that for timber containing defects, there is a direct relationship between the deflection of a short length under a small transverse load and the transverse load required to cause failure.
During the testing of the new bearing, a measurement was also taken under the conditions of variable rotational speed and step changing of transverse load, which were to lead to a quicker wear of the bearing bush material.
The new bearings are designed to withstand a maximum vertical load of 72,500 kilograms (160,000 pounds), a transverse load of 113,400 kilograms (250,000 pounds), a longitudinal load of 31,700 kilograms (70,000 pounds), and an uplift load of 4,500 kilograms (10,000 pounds).
To calculate the maximum possible transverse load that can be applied to an anchor system, it is necessary to consider the nosing force of the train, the centrifugal force, which depends on the radius of curvature and the train velocity in the curved section, the wind load, and the thermal load of the rail.
