CVEN207 6/23/16 Lab 6 Exercise: Beam Bending Under 3-Point Loading The beam, or flexural member, is frequently encountered in structures and machines, and its elementary stress analysis constitutes one of the more interesting facets of mechanics of materials. A beam is a member subjected to loads applied transverse to the long dimension, causing the member to bend. efore proceeding with a more detailed discussion of the stress analysis of beams, it is useful to classify some of the various types of beams and loadings encountered in practice. Beams are frequently classified on the basis of supports or reactions. A beam supported by pins, rollers, or smooth surfaces at the ends is called a simple beam. A simple support will develop a reaction normal to the beam, but will not produce a moment at the reaction. If Test Procedure: 1. Produce light emissions x-sectional geometry for examination. Measure the specimen geometry precisely, including traverse length (L) amongst backings and compute snippet of latency about z.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
