  • Bending Moment Intro
    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 simply supported beam is a structure...

    Structures 3.3 Analysis for gravity loads Simple framing If a simple framing is used, the analysis is quite simple because they can be considered as simply supported. In such cases, shears and moments can be determined by statics. The gravity loads applied to the columns are relatively easy to estimate, but...
