Unformatted text preview: shear force and bending moments along the length of a structural member What about normal force diagrams? SIGN CONVENTION STEPS FOR DETERMINING V AND M DIAGRAMS 1. Determine reactions of the beam 2. Decompose the forces acting on the beam in parallel and perpendicular forces acting on the beam 3. Set a coordinate system where x starts at the left hand side of the structural member 4. Calculate the shear force and bending moment at different sections of the beam 5. Plot your results EXAMPLE Given : The loading on the beam. Find : The shear and bending diagram. Plan : Follow the procedure!! GROUP PROBLEM SOLVING Given : The loading on the beam. Find : The shear and bending diagrams. Plan : Follow the procedure!! NEXT CLASS Problems...
