    A definition of the term "Bernoulli-Euler law" is presented. The law is named after the Swiss mathematicians, Daniel Bernoulli and Leonhard Euler. The law states that, for an elastic beam of thickness "a" bent to a radius of curvature "R," such that "R" is greater that "a," the bending moment...
