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...
DIAGRAM? A FBD is a simplified representation of a PARTICLE or RIGID BODY that is isolated from its surroundings and on which all applied forces and reactions are shown. All forces acting on a particle original body must be considered, and equally important any force not directly applied on the body...
exerted on the rivets, owing to the expansion and contraction of the plates. Bending Moments are rotational forces within the beam that cause bending. At any point within a beam, the Bending Moment is the sum of: each external force multiplied by the distance that is perpendicular to the direction of the...

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...
Bending Moments and Shear Force Diagrams for Beams In addition to axially loaded bars/rods (e.g. truss) and torsional shafts, the structural members may experience some loads perpendicular to the axis of the beam and will case only shear and bending in the beam. The current chapter together with Chapters...
deflection of a floor beam is excessive, the floor finishes and partition walls supported on the beam may get cracked and unserviceable. 2.What is meant by cambering technique in structures? Cambering is a technique applied on site, in which a slight upward curve is made in the structure/ beam during construction...
Experiment 7: Deflection of beams (Effect of beam length and width) 1. OBJECTIVE The objective of this laboratory experiment is to find the relationship between the deflection (y) at the centre of a simply supported beam and the span, width. 2. MATERIALS - APPARATUS Steel Beams, Deflection measuring...
In this experiment we come to know how different amalgamation of loads and distances causes the variation of bending moments across the length of a beam. Another attribute of this report is that it envisage about the agreement of theoretical values calculated with those which are calculate during the...
