The deflection of a spring beam depends on its length, its cross-sectional shape, the material, where the deflecting force is applied, and how the beam is supported.
The equations given here are for homogenous, linearly elastic materials, and where the rotations of a beam...
Basic structural learning begins with an analyzing of a simply supported beam. A beam is a structural member (horizontal) that is design to support the applied load (vertical). It resists the applied loading by a combination of internal transverse shear force and bending moment. An acc...
A bending moment is simply defined as “the algebraic sum of the moments of all the forces which induces bending of an element” (1). The aim of this assignment is to work out the bending moment in a simply supported beam when different concentrated loads are applied to it. A...
EXPERIMENT : CONTINUOUS BEAM
1.0 Learning outcome:
1.1 Determine the magnitude of the fixing moment in a continuous beam by experiment and
to compare this with the value predicted by theory.
After calculating and observing the values and action of shear force it is concluded that:
The bending moment is at maximum when the shear force is zero or changes sign.
For every member the internal forces are described by shear force and bending moment.
7. SOURCES OF ERROR
1.0 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
The deflections of a beam are an engineering concern as they can create an unstable structure if they are large. People don’t want to work in a building in which the floor beams deflect an excessive amount, even though it may be in no danger of failing. Consequently, limit...
