How do I apply a shear load, V, and bending moment, M on a thin-walled cylindrical shell FEM to capture the correct bending stresses and shear stresses according to beam theory? According to beam theory, the bending stress is a function of sine, fb = M*Sin(theta)/(Pi*r^2*t) and the shear stress is a function of cosine, fv = V*Cos(theta)/(Pi*r*t) where theta is the angle above the neutral axis.
