STRESSES AND STRAINS STRESSES AND STRAINS Stress is defined as load divided by the Stress is defined as load divided by the cross-sectional area on which it acts. cross-sectional area on which it acts. Strain is defined as the change in length divided by the original length. Stress = σ = Q/A Strain = ε = ΔL/L

CALCULATION OF INTERNAL FORCES Step 1 – Draw FBD of the structure (beam) and calculate the reactions at the support.
CALCULATION OF INTERNAL FORCES Step 2 – Draw FBD of either the left or the right section of the structure (beam), this is similar to the method of sections.

SIGN CONVENTION FOR SHEAR FORCES The internal shear force is considered positive if it causes clockwise rotation of the structural member under consideration and negative otherwise as shown below. Positive Negative
SIGN CONVENTION FOR BENDING MOMENT The internal bending moment is considered positive if it causes compression in the top fiber of the structural member under consideration as shown below.

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
