## Using Dirac Delta Formalism to Calculate Shear Force and Bending Moment

Editor's note: This article was written by Valentin Fadeev, a physics PhD candidate in the UK. He also co-authored this article on equivalences and isomorphisms in category theory. You can find him on Twitter via the handle @ValFadeev. The delta function was introduced by P.A.M. Dirac, one of the founders of quantum electrodynamics. The delta…
