- $q = \map {\dfrac {\d^2} {\d x^2} } {E I \dfrac {\d^2 w} {\d x^2} }$

where:

- $q$ is the bending moment
- $E$ is Young's modulus
- $\dfrac {\d^2 w} {\d x^2}$ is the curvature
- $I$ is the moment of inertia of the cross-section about an axis through the center of mass and perpendicular to the plane of the couple.
