Exam 2 Concept Review Concept 1 - Evaluating beam reactions, shear force and bending moment diagrams. You will have 1 problem on this concept. Evalute reactions, and compute shear force diagram plus bending moment diagam. You will be given the RULES for SFD and BMD on the formula sheet. The key to scoring well on this part of the exam is through mastery, which is achieved by practice. To maximize your points : 1) Show your equilibrium equations when computing beam reactions. 2) For each diagram, clearly indicate shape (Constant, Linear, Quadratic) and value of the diagram at each transition point. 3) For shear diagrams, indicate the location where the diagram crosses zero, which can be found by: 4) For moment diagrams, be sure to compute the value of the moment at the maximum and minimum. 5) The change in moment between two locations is the area of the shear diagram between those two points. For trapezoidal areas: 6) Show your calculations along the side. If you make an error in your calculation, it will be obvious why, so you won't lose as many points.

What students are saying

• 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.
