Relationships Between Load, Shear and Bending Moment LEARNING OBJECTIVES Be able to identify the relationship between the externally applied load, and the internally generated shear force and bending moment PRE-REQUISITE KNOWLEDGE Units of measurement Trigonometry concepts Rectangular component concepts Equilibrium of forces in 2-D Internal force concepts SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT DIAGRAMS (SFD AND BMD)
Shear force diagram (SFD) is a graphic representation of the vertical shear force (V) along a structural member Bending moment diagram (BMD) is a graphic representation of the bending moment (M) along a structural member Sign convention of shear force (V) and bending moment (M) in the diagrams can be defined as follows SIGN CONVENTION OF SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT
The internal shear force is considered positive if it causes clockwise rotation of the structural member under consideration as shown below; Negative otherwise Positive Negative SIGN CONVENTION OF SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT
The internal bending moment is considered positive if it causes compression of the top fiber of the structural member under consideration as shown below. Negative other wise. Tension at Bottom Tension at top Positive Moment Negative Moment STEPS OF CONSTRUCTING SFD AND BMD
1. Draw FBD and solve for support reactions 2. Calculate the shear force along the member from left to right "Shear force due to distributed loading can be calculated as the area underneath the load. 3. Draw SFD based on the calculated shear force from left to right 4. Calculate the bending moment along the member from left to right "Bending moment can be calculated as the area underneath the SFD" 5. Draw BMD based on the calculated bending moment from left to right EXAMPLE 1 If P = 600 lb, a = 5 ft and b = 7 ft, draw the SFD and BMD Solve for support reactions
AX SOLUTION 1 R
AY 5 ft 7 ft BY MA= 0; RBY(12) 600(5) = 0; R R R = 250 lb SOLUTION 1 -Contd.
Draw SFD and BMD
600 lb 5 ft 350 lb 350 lb SFD 250 lb 0 + 5(350) = 1750 lb-ft BMD 7 ft 250 lb 0 lb 1750 7(250) = 0 lb-ft EXAMPLE 2 Draw SFD and BMD for the beam SOLUTION 2
Solve for support reactions
AY BY R R MA = 0; RBY(20) 50(20)(10) 200 = 0; R = 510 lb SOLUTION 2 -Contd. 490 lb 510 lb 490 lb SFD 0 lb 490/50 = 9.8 ft 490 50(20) = 510 lb 0.5(9.8)(490) = 2401 lb-ft BMD 2401 0.5(10.2)(510) = 200 lb-ft QUESTION
