Abstract:
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 experiment. The experiment was designed to foster creative thinking and to make the study of structural analysis more meaningful by incorporating the concept of design, model, test, observe and discuss.

Theory:
Firstly, to compare the theoretical internal moment with the measured bending moment for a beam under various loads, and Secondly, to measure the shear force at a normal section of a loaded beam and to check its corroboration with theory. The basis of this experiment is to give students a hands-on experience and give them an idea of structural analysis and its application in Material Science and Engineering through real-life examples such as bridges, etc. This experiment bears exemplary significance in the careers of Material Students as it integrates Material Analysis, Stress Analysis, Structural Study, Force Application and Theoretical Calculations. Normally a beam is analysed to obtain the maximum stress and this is compared to the material strength to determine the design safety margin. It is also normally required to calculate the deflection on the beam under the maximum expected

    Deflections of a beam are important to be able predict the amount of deflection for a given loading situation. This experiment addresses determining the yield point for a material to fail, so the stress in the material does not have to reach to that point. This is where understanding beam deflection becomes a useful tool. This experiment is using beam deflection theory to evaluate and compare observed deflection per load values to theoretical values. Beam deflection experiment done by four parts. Part 1 -Simple Supported Bean, part 2-Cantilever Beam, part 3-The Principle of Superposition, and Part 4-Maxwell’s Reciprocity Theorem. For part 1 and 2 beam dimensions were recorded and are moment of inertia (I) was calculated using the following formula I=bh3/12.for part1, maximum permissible loads for mid-span and quarter-span were calculated. For part 2 maximum permissible loads for mid-span and end of the cantilever beam were calculated. For both parts different loads were applied and deflections were recorded. After calculating average modulus of elasticity for simple supported beam, which was approximately (-27.6*10^6 psi), it was compared to modulus of elasticity chart. The result indicates that the beam simple supported beam was made of Wrought iron. For cantilever beam, average modulus of elasticity were calculated, which was approximately (9148056.3), and compared with young’s modulus chart .the result indicate that cantilever beam was made of Aluminum. Part 3 reference point was chosen, single concentrated load at other point was applied and deflection was recorded at reference point. Same procedure was applied at another point on the beam and deflection was recorded at reference point. Finally, both loads were applied and deflection was recorded at the…

    Each type of design is although, unique in its own way, fulfills the desired goal that the Truss Brides are made for. The purpose of this experiment is to research various bridges and build a similar one that gave the students the highest inspiration. For one case in particular, the bridge design was in-spired by the Pratt Bridge and almost every height, width, and length met the requirements ex-cept for the length on the bottom part of the bridge, it exceeded the maximum height that was asked. Moreover the bridge held a total of 20 pounds before one of the top sticks snapped. Alt-hough it performed a decent job, the bridge could have held more weight if there were more di-agonals to provide more support so the bridge wouldn't break. Furthermore, this bridge fulfilled its goal and held a large amount of weight for such a small bridge. These bridges are also very significant for this planet because it is very resourceful and effective, as well as…

    “Beams are long straight members that are subjected to loads perpendicular to their longitudinal axis and are classified according to the way they are supported”[1]. When a beam is subjected to an external load there are unseen internal forces within the beam that one must be aware of when implementing it into any design or structure. These internal forces create stress and strain that could result in failure or deformation. This lab looked at how an aluminum cantilevered beam performed under symmetric and unsymmetrical bending as well as the stresses and strains developed as a result.…

    There is many reason that we need bridges in every day of our life, from sufficient means to pass over a roadway, waterway, railway, or other structure. You don’t even think about them because it takes no effort to get over them and they are just there for your use. So if you don’t think of them for everyday use I highly doubt that you would think of the physics that is involved in putting one together or the kind of force the bridge can actually take. I am going to show you the max force a truss bridge can take by demonstration it to you in class and also by trying to calculate it. I am also going to go over the many ways that truss bridges can fail and come to a tumbling crash.…

    In this experiment the main aim was to modelling a frame subjected to multiple loading conditions and record how the force and strain vary to different loads. The frame represented a simple roof trusses and the loading conditions are similar to what a typical roof would undergo. In this experiment a universal fame was used with load cells to provide the load and digital force and strain instruments to record the data. As the load was increased the strain went up linear showing a linear relationship between loading and strain. After analysing results it was found that the results for experimental forces compared to theoretical forces were very close showing that this experiment was very accurate, with very small uncertainty, the reason for this is due to very sensitive equipment as a change of 1µϵ is equivalent to change of 6 N (using young’s modulus) and other factors described in detail in the report.…

    An investigation into beam bending and superposition. Being able to analyse how beams bend is an essential tool for all engineers. By using mathematics and material properties, engineers are able to compute structural deformation thus verifying a structures fitness for use. In this experiment a simply supported beam of aluminium is loaded with point forces in three different cases. A clock gauge is positioned in the middle of the beam to measure the deflection. The results of a complex arrangement of forces can be deduced by the superposition of more simple cases. Superposition is possible only when the response of the structure is linear, e.g. when deflection is directly proportional to the applied load. Also the experimental and theoretical deflections of the beam will be compared and a percentage error obtained. There was a second test performed in this investigation demonstrating the influence the 2nd moment of area, also known as the second moment of inertia, had on the load carrying capacity of the beam. The results from test 1 show that it is possible to deduce the deflection of the beam when loaded with point forces by superposition. Results from test 2 show that the deflection of a beam is influenced greatly by its moment of inertia, i.e. with a greater value of inertia there is a smaller deflection.…

    There are four parts in this big experiment, including deflection of a cantilever, deflection of a simply supported beam, the shape of a deflected beam, and circular bending. In these four parts, a same set of laboratory instrument and apparatus is used, concluding a bracket, a moveable digital dial test indicator, U-section channel, moveable knife-edge, and three material beams: brass, aluminum, and steel. The experiment methods, and fixed point to the beam are the differences between these four small experiments. The aim of this experiment is to improve the ability to use the precision engineering components like moveable digital dial test indicator, also understand the formula: Deflection= WL^3/3EI.…
