Industry relevance

Using FBD in Static and dynamic equilibrium situations, component loads and load path of an assembly could be derived. The concept is useful in joint assessment (reactions). Concept of FBD could also be used in fluid mechanics, heat transfer, electromechanical situations and others. Further, FBD helps resolve the direction of friction which is not obvious in some situations.

Example : Loads seen by casings via bearing support structures, which originates at shaft.
