Bending of a Beam Senior Freshman Engineering Laboratories Lab: 2E4A Coordinator: Asst. Prof. Bidisha Ghosh Demonstrator: Concept A transverse load is applied to a beam. The beam changes its shape and experiences bending moment. Internal stresses (bending stress) develop in the beam. In the bent or curved shape, the material on the inside of the curve experiences compression and material on the outside of the curve experiences tension. In pure bending, the transverse planes in the material...

On the Large Deflections of a Class of Cantilever Beams Moses Frank Oduori, Ph.D., Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, The University of Nairobi. Abstract An equation for the determination of large deflections of beams is derived from first principles. Laboratory tests were carried out in order to validate the theory. The theoretical and experimental results were found to be in good agreement. Introduction In much of the study and practice of mechanical and structural...

Bending Moment Intro

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, usually with a straight profile supported at the ends, often pinned on one side and simply supported or on a roller on the other. There will be three series of loads applied to this beam & the findings...

Beam Deflection Experiment

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, limits are often placed upon the allowable deflections of a beam, as well as upon the stresses. When loads are applied to a beam their originally straight axes become curved. Displacements from the initial axes...

For example, the oxidative rusting of iron under the atmosphere is a slow reaction that can take many years, but the combustion of cellulose in a fire is a reaction that takes place in fractions of a second (right).

Human and Animal Reaction Time

life, both human and animal, reaction time can mean the difference between life and death. Reaction time is defined as “the time it takes to react to a stimuli (Norman, 2011).” In humans, hand dominance (left-handed vs. right-handed) can further impact this reaction time. In this case a simple study of reaction time and hand dominance is being used to illustrate the practical application of the scientific method in the laboratory. Observation Human reaction times vary person to person and...
