Created by Actus Potentia, Inc. - 1 - Shear and Moment Diagrams Introduction This tool guides you through a two-step process. You can pose a beam problem through an easy-to-learn user interface. You get systematic and structured instructions for drawing the shear and bending- moment diagrams for the loaded beam. You are using the “Statics” version of the tool, that can analyze determinate beams only – beams supported with either two simple supports or one clamped support. The other limitation is that the distributed loads can be uniform or linear. Workspace When you open the shear-moment tool, you get a window as shown in Figure-1. Figure-1: Workspace You pose a problem by clicking on the “Input/Beam Parameters” button. Step-2: The “Solve/Analyze Beam” button guides you through the analysis. The “About” button takes you to a website where you can read/download this manual or watch a movie demonstrating the use of this tool. The “Exit” button terminates the program. Example-1 You want to draw the shear and bending-moment diagrams for the simply-supported beam of Figure-2. Figure-2: Example-1

Created by Actus Potentia, Inc. - 2 - Click “Input/Beam Parameters” - You will get the window of Figure-3. Figure-3: Beam Parameters Select “English” units. Click “Beam Geometry” – You will get the window of Figure-4. Figure-4: Beam Geometry Enter “Length” as 15 feet. Click “Add” to add a support – You will get the window of Figure-5 Figure-5: Adding Support Select support “Type” as “Simple”. Enter “Location” as 3 feet. Click “OK” – You will be back to the window of Figure-4 . Click “Add” to enter the “Type” (simple) and “Location” (13) of the 2nd simple support. Click “OK” – You will get the window of Figure-6 showing the beam geometry.
- 3 - Figure-6: Updated Beam Geometry Click “OK” – You will be back to the window of Figure-3. Click “Forces/Moments” to add the loading – You will get the window of Figure-7. Figure-7: Forces and Moments Click “Add” to include the 3000 ft-lb moment – You will get the window of Figure-8. Figure-8: Adding couple Select “Type” as “Couple”. Select “Orientation” as counter-clock-wise (“CCW”). Enter “Magnitude” as 3000. Enter “Location” as 0.
